Map sensors to device channels and group all sensors for an equipment into a data
group. You can configure data collection behaviors for each data group.
Ensure that you have added at least one equipment asset
with sensor assets on the Asset Configuration page.
Data groups enable you to organize data from device channels monitoring the same equipment into
one data event. Since each equipment asset has a defined set of operating states,
create one data group per equipment asset.
Double-click the device whose channels you want to map.
Select the Equipment Mapping tab and click
Click Add, select the equipment level asset, and click
You created a new data group.
If you remove
the Default data group from this section, your device channels will
automatically be reassigned to the data group you added.
Click the Channels tab and select one of the
Click Select Data Group and select the new data group
from the pull-down.
Once you assign the data group to your channels, select a channel and select a
sensor in the right-hand asset tree to map a channel to a sensor asset.
Repeat steps 4-5 until you have mapped each of the sensors to a channel.
Not all device channels
need to have a sensor mapped to them.
Add additional data groups to the device if you are mapping remaining channels to sensor assets associated with different
Above the Equipment Mapping tab, click Validate.
InsightCM removes unmapped
channels when you click Validate. Use the
Channels tab to add channels back to the Channels
table as needed.
Above the device's configuration tabs, click Back to
Select the device whose channels you configured and click Update
Configuration under the Devices tab.
Any changes you make on the
Device Configuration page or the Asset Configuration page will not be
applied until you click Update Configuration.
