Data is viewed in SCADAWatch primarily through either Charts or Dashlets.
Charts are a quick way to visualize and interact with data from sensors.
There are four types of Charts available in SCADAWatch:
Historical Chart - The default chart displays a timeseries of data in an interactive interface
Gauge Chart - Gauge Charts show a current snapshot of the latest sensor reading relative to a pre-set scale
Status Chart - Status Charts show the status of a group of sensors over a 24 hour period
Pump Efficiency Chart - Pump efficiency curves show where the pump is operating along its pump curve for a selected window of time.
Unlike other features in SCADAWatch, Charts are not saved and stored within the Command Center. Instead, Charts can be quickly created for any sensor in two ways:
The Chart Tab
The Chart tab in Command Center is a tool to create charts from scratch for any sensor.
This tab gives access to configuration tools explained in the links below.
Selecting any sensor from the Map View
Click any sensor on the map to open its information window. From here, links give access to create a Historical or Gauge Chart.
The following pages provide information for using each of the Chart and Gauge user interface windows:
- Historical Chart Configuration
- Gauge Chart Configuration
- Reference Chart Style
- Chart Examples
- Status Charts
- Sensor Group Watcher
- Pump Efficiency Curve
SCADAWatch Dashlets are customizable visual tiles that can display network information in a range of formats.
Displays a timeseries of the selected sensor or group of sensors. Functions can be applied to the timeseries of data to display a variety of output data, such as a simple flow rate sensor could be used to plot the average total flow per month over the past year.
Displays a table of the specified sensor's timeseries data.
Displays a window with readings of the two compared sensors. Arrow buttons at sides of window can switch the displayed time of measurement.
Displays an adjustable Google map with indicators at the selected sensors.
Click and drag theicon to access Google street view.
Displays a table of Alerts that can be organized to sort either by Sensor or by Alert Category.
Displays a scatter plot for comparing two sensors as x and y coordinates.
This can be used to view how a pump is performing along its pump curve.
Displays content from an external site. This can include a variety of applications from weather feeds or videos.
Displays an image file. This can be used to display schematics, as-built drawings, etc.
Dashlets can be created or edited from the Dashlet tab in the Command Center.
For information on the setup and configuration, refer to the Dashlets page.
