How does your organization use Tools.Valarm.net calculators?
Industrial IoT calculators give you the power to automatically calculate values based off of your remote monitoring information.
Say you’ve got sensors that report environmental readings in one unit, e.g., temperature in fahrenheit or tank levels and volumes in gallons.
Now you, your teams, your clients, your organization, or anyone else wants to see these IoT sensor measurements in a different measurement unit, like monitoring temperatures in celsius or water levels and tank volumes in liters.
You’ll learn in this tutorial how to use the Tools.Valarm.net calculator for converting temperature sensor measurements from celsius to fahrenheit.
Note that Calculators can be combined and ordered in ways that work best for you. You can use the output from 1 calculator as the input to another calculator. For example, the temperature in fahrenheit output from the calculator described in this How To Tutorial can be used as input for calculators that do other calculations like:
Ready to learn how to use Tools.Valarm.net calculators to convert temperature sensor measurements?
First off go to your Device Manager on Tools.Valarm.net. Select and click your Device you’d like to set up with Calculators. Under the orange Data Path button in the upper right, click the Other Calculators menu option.
Now enter a name for your new calculator and set the type to Conversion – Celsius to Fahrenheit. Click the blue plus / + button to create your new calculator.
You’ll see the Edit Calculator window where you can configure and set up your newly born calculator. Add notes in the note field so you can remember why you’re doing this and who will use it.
For your output channel, choose where you’d like the converted sensor temperatures to be saved. This sensor field / column will have the results from your remote temperature monitoring systems. We’ve selected the User 01 sensor channel for this temperature sensor.
The input channel is where your incoming temperature is being stored in Celsius. These sensor measurements may come from any variety of your favorite temperature sensors, like:
- A standard, plain ol’ temperature sensor
- Meteo (temperature, humidity, & pressure) micro-climate weather sensor
- Or any other Industrial IoT sensors you’ve got
Save your new temperature calculator. Then back in the Configure Calculators window you can use the arrows to click and drag and change the order of your Tools.Valarm.net IoT sensor calculators.
You’ll see in the screenshot we’ve put the new sensor temperature calculator at the top of the list. It’s the first in the order. Save this and you can use the output channel, User 01 in this case, as an input to any of your other calculators like running average statistics, filtering, and interpolations like linear, cubic curves, and Akima splines.
That’s it! Your newly made temperature Calculator is now available all throughout Tools.Valarm.net
