Poll Parameters for Machine Window

The Poll Parameters for Machine window is used for the following:

  • Poll as many as six parameters from a single machine.

  • Create a graph of the parameters that were selected.

  • Display a table that contains information about the parameters that were selected.

  • Retrieve the Service Meter Hours of the machine that is selected.

Note: The machine must have established communications with the radio before any values will appear.

The Poll Parameters for Machine window that is shown in Illustration 1 contains the following:

Waveform Chart - Each parameter value on the Waveform Chart (1) is plotted on the graph when the value is returned. The graph has a shared y-axis for the parameter value. The x-axis on the graph represents the time in seconds.

Parameter Value table - The Parameter Value table (2) indicates the name of each selected parameter, the value of the parameter, and the units of each parameter that was polled.

Legend - The Legend (3) displays the color of the lines that will be shown on the graph. Each color represents a different parameter. The parameter name and the units are repeated. The values are rounded to two decimal places.

Note: The Legend will display parameters that have an FMI code, but these values will not appear on the graph.

SMH field - The SMH field (4) is used to list the Service Meter Hours of the machine.

Get SMH button - The Get SMH button (5) is used to send the Service Meter Hours of the machine to the "SMH" field.

Select Parameters button - The Select Parameters button (6) is used to open the Select Parameters window.

Polling button - The Polling button (7) is used in order to start polling a machine. This button is also used to stop polling a machine. The text on this button will toggle for each state. For example, if you are polling a machine, the text will read "Stop Polling". When you are no longer polling the machine, the text will read "Start Polling".

Exit Button - The Exit button (8) is used to close the Poll Parameters for Machine window.

Plot Method - Select the "Graph and Table" box in the Plot Method section (9) in order to add the value of the data below each point on the graph.

Last Updated Field - The Last Updated field (10) indicates the time of the last update.

Select Parameters Window

The Select Parameters window is used to choose up to six parameters for viewing from a list of parameters that are available for the selected machine. A VIMS PC Database must be selected in the Setup section of the Toolkit. The database must contain data from a data logger or an event recorder.

The Select Parameters window that is shown in Illustration 2 includes the following items:

Select Parameters area - The Select Parameters area (11) is used to select the parameters for a specific machine.

Available Parameters table - The Available Parameters table (12) lists all of the parameters that can be selected for a machine. The user first scrolls to the desired parameter. The user then adds the parameter from the Selected Parameters table or the user removes the parameter.

Add button - The Add button (13) is used to add a parameter to the Selected Parameters table.

Remove button - The Remove button (14) is used to remove a parameter from the Selected Parameters table.

Selected Parameters table - The Selected Parameters table (15) contains all of the parameters that will be displayed in the Poll Parameters for Machine window.

Sample Interval (Sec) field - The Sample Interval (Sec) value (16) is used to select the frequency of the requests for the values of the parameters. If a smaller value with a higher frequency is chosen, then more values will be returned. Additionally, the communications that are required with the radio will increase.

Time out (Sec) field - Toolkit will time out if a value is not returned within the number of seconds that is listed in the Time out (Sec) field (17) .

Units area - The Units Area area (18) is used to select the units of the parameters that are selected. This area contains two types of units: "English" and "Metric". The values in the graph and within the tables will be displayed in the selected units.

Ok button - The Ok button (19) applies the selections that were chosen.

Cancel button - The button (20) cancels all selections.
