On the Data Viewer page, users load trends of features and spectral bands assigned to a sensor. In the NI InsightCM web application, you define which features and spectral bands are available by first creating a default set of features and spectral bands for NI InsightCM Server to automatically assign to each sensor. This default set is referred to as a feature set. You also can manually assign additional features and spectral bands that are not part of a feature set to a sensor.

Complete the following steps to review the predefined feature sets in the NI InsightCM web application and make any changes at the system or asset level.

Adding a Feature to an Asset Definition

  1. In the NI InsightCM web application, browse to the Asset Node Definition Editor page and select the sensor you want to add a feature for.
  2. Click the Features sub-tab at the right. Notice that some items in the features list have Yes in the Default column to indicate the items are from a feature set.
    Note  If this tab does not contain any default features, the NI InsightCM web application does not contain a feature set for that particular sensor and measurement type. Only sensors on dynamic modules, such as the NI 9232, whose type is accelerometer, velocity, displacement, or tachometer have built-in feature sets, but you can create a new feature set for other types.
  3. Click the Add button. A dialog box displays and prompts you to select from additional items you can assign to the sensor. If the dialog box is empty, no additional features or spectral bands are available.

If you add an additional feature or spectral band to a sensor, you can highlight it in the feature list and click the Toggle Default button to add that feature to the feature set.

Adding a New Feature to the System

  1. Browse to the System page»Features tab.
  2. Click Add.
  3. In the resulting dialog box, enter a name and parameters for a new feature.
