Phantom Wizard Configuration
Adding a Phantom sensor is now easier than ever. Here we will explain you the process to add your devices to your database.
On the configuration window menu, select preferences and go to the phanom tab, once there, check the box with the option “Show phantom menu” and cick “ok” to sabe changes.
Now, the Phantom menu will show in the window’s menu bar. Go to the phantom window and select Wizard.
The Phantom Configuration Wizard screen opens in a new window. Click the Next button.
Option A allows us to manually enter a phantom code, and with option B we are able to scaan the phantom QR code.
You can add phantoms by using 11-digit ID code, select the Manually button:
The Code window opens. Manually enter the 11-digit Phantom ID code from the sensor’s QR label (2-digit sensor model code + 9-digit sensor serial number) into the Code text field. Then click the Ok button. The manually entered sensor will appear in the Phantoms added section. Sensors may be removed from the group using the Delete option
Scanning the QR code
(PC, laptop or tablet computer camera required): Click the QR Code Reader button. The Code Bar Reader window opens.
Select the desired camera from the Device dropdown list. Position the QR label in front of the camera – squarely and close enough to be clearly read. The Code Bar Reader window will automatically capture the image, momentarily turn green and document the sensor when it has read the QR code. It will then close automatically, and the scanned sensor will appear in the Phantoms added section.
Duplicate phantom sensor
Once we finish adding a phantom sensor, the wizard will show the sensor general features on the box to the rigth of the add phantom buttons:
Also, the copy phatom sensor button will now be avaliable:
Select this button, a panel is show where we can duplicate a phantom by coping his configuration in to another sensor, in the box below the copy phantom sensor button select a phantom from your database, the sensor settings will show in a table below. You can cancel this process by selecting the no copy any settings button:
Naming and configuration
The Set Phantom screen allows users to identify Phantoms using common nomenclature, for an easier identification in DigivibeMX Phantom. In the example below the sensor was named “Example high range phantom”:
We can organize ur phantom devices with the following tools:
- With the group box, we can select a previously group name from the list or tye a new one to create a group:
- In the name box, we can select a name for our device o simplify the phantom identification:
- On the description box, we select what kind of phantom are we using:
- At least the Interval Send data establishes the sensor’s collection interval. The minimum value for data collection is 10 minutes, and the maximum is 1,440 minutes (1 day).
Once you’re finish click next.
In the next window, we find the Assing Channels screen, here we can assign the device to an analysis point in a selected machine from the tree, we can only set one point per phantom:
Set the Axis and Alarms
Next we have the set phantom alarms window. This window have two options, the Axis configuration and the alarms.
In the Axis configuration, we slelect a value for each phantom axis, we can set horizontal, vertical or axial from the displayed list:
In alarms we can set a preset RMS and tempeture threshold. If the alarm value is exceeded, the sensor will immediately wake and send an unscheduled data collection.
Completing Phantom Configuration
Finally, the Completing Phantom Configuration screen provides an opportunity to add a new phanom sensor and review the sensor configurations. If corrections need to be made, the previous button can be used. If satisfied with the configuration, click Finish to save all changes and close the wizard. Changes can be abandoned by closing the window or clicking Cancel.
