Locations form the core of the asset monitoring platform. On each location measurements are recorded. Locations can be added by clicking on the add location icon on the bottom right of the map. On the left hand side the location view is opened where all locations are shown including a search function.
The list of and the link to all created locations can be accessed by selecting the locations icon on the left hand side menu bar.
Each location can consist of multiple location-ports. These are ports onto which measurements are made. For example: a substation can be a location and the ports can be: Transformer, low voltage rack, medium voltage rack etc. An unlimited number of ports can be added to a location. In case there are lines in the vicinity of a location then each port can also be coupled to a line or line segment.
A device is connected to a location and device channel to a location port.
The device channel defines a channel where actual measurements are made, e.g. we can record temperature reading on Wire 1, pressure reading on Wire 5, while, internal battery and RSSI are recorded on Sensor channel.
Ports, often containing measuring points, are searchable. This allows for gaining faster insights with regards to specific ports.
It is possible to add static properties to locations. For example: pipe diameter, manufacturer, color, warranty date etc. These fields are called form fields and are configured in the environment settings (see form fields in environment settings). If there is an API with a GIS system then the data is automatically loaded.
Properties can be edited by clicking the pen icon.
Each location can be represented by a photo. The image can be removed or changed in properties, by selecting the pen icon.
