Vibration Measurement Devices

SDC currently supports the following vibration measurement module devices:

Device View – Vibration Devices

The device view of a vibration measurement device first shows a navigation bar at the top, which indicates the project(s) to which that device is assigned. The name of the device is displayed to the left below this. In the top right, beneath the device symbol , the context menu can be reached as normal via the “Device” label. This menu contains the “Edit” command, which opens the Edit mode of the device and where the device’s properties can be edited.


Properties
Displays general properties of the device, such as type, name, serial number and version. Also shows the start date for data imports, along with the date/time of the last transfer of data, shown separately according to background, event and health data (health data only with Menhir devices).

Device Measuring Points
Lists the device measuring points made available to the device, along with essential properties, in particularly

  • Measuring Point: Name of the device measuring point. Clicking on this name opens a further Detail view for the device measuring point. See Device Measuring Point View.
  • Last Background Data: Date/time of the most recent transfer of background data.
  • Last Event: Date/time of the most recent event.
  • Assignments: The number of assignments, that is the number of (SDC) measuring points to which the device measuring point is currently connected (or assigned). A list of these measuring points is shown in the device measuring point view (reached by clicking on the name).

Health Data (last four weeks ) - only for Menhir devices

Displays a diagram of the battery, supply and voltage data from the last four weeks. If no data is available for this period, a text box with the words ‘No Data Available’ will be shown.

To reach the Edit mode from this view, in order to edit these properties, please carry out the “Edit” command in the context menu. This is done by clicking on the name of the device below the device symbol in the top right.

Device Measuring Point View - Vibration Devices

At the top of the Device Measuring Points View for vibration devices, there is a navigation bar. This shows the affiliation of the device measuring point with the device.

Otherwise, this view contains the following sections:

Assignments

Lists of (SDC) measuring points which are linked with these device measuring points (i.e. to which these device measuring points are assigned).



Tachymeter Devices

Currently SDC supports the following tachymeter module devices:

  • Tachymeter control device “Glötzl MCC TS” (GLÖTZL Gesellschaft für Baumesstechnik mbH)
    The MCC TS is not a measuring device. Instead, it is used to control one or more tachymeters connected to it as actual measuring devices. It is also responsible for transferring data to the SDC.
  • Generic tachymeter:
    In a tachymeter control device (or the connected tachymeters), one or more instrument measuring points, and one or more measuring points (geo points) per instrument measuring point can be defined as “data-bearing elements”. Both elements are also mapped in the SDC and are used there for the configuration of (SDC) tachymeter measuring points: They are used in the definition of so-called assignments which define the measurement data available in the (SDC) measuring point.

Device View - Tachymeter Devices

The device view of a tachymeter device first shows a navigation bar at the top, which indicates the project(s) to which that device is assigned. The name of the device is displayed to the left below this, above the current connection state. In the top right, beneath the device symbol , the context menu can be reached as normal via the “Device” label. This menu contains the “Edit” command which opens the Edit mode of the device, where the device’s properties can be edited.
