Edit Thresholds optionEdit threshold settings for any sensor reported for any device.
You select a device group or device in the navigation tree of the Navigation view in the Alarm Configuration perspective to view the thresholds for that selection.
Three basic types of thresholds are available: those that use numeric settings, those that use state settings, and those that monitor communication link status.
- Numeric thresholds:
- Air Flow
- Current (Amps)
- Dew Point
- Energy (kWh)
- Other Numeric Sensors
- Power (VA)
- Power (kVA)
- Power (Watts)
- Power (kWatts)
- State thresholds:
- Dry Contact
- Motion Sensor
- Other State Sensors
- Communication threshold
- Communication status
All types of thresholds allow you to do the following:
- Edit thresholds at one time for multiple sensors of the same type (for example, all are Humidity sensors, or all are Door sensors) at the devices monitored by the Data Center Expert server.
- Specify the severity and return-to-normal parameters for any defined threshold.
- Provide a custom description for any defined threshold.
- Configure Threshold Scheduling to specify when any defined threshold is active.
- Right-click menu Edit Thresholds in the navigation tree in the Navigation view: each option allows you to simultaneously edit the thresholds for one or more sensors that match that option, for the selected device group or device.
- Right-click menu Edit Thresholds in the Threshold Alarm Configuration view: allows you to edit only the threshold selected, or when multiple thresholds are selected, each option allows you to simultaneously edit the thresholds for all the sensors that match that option.
- Right-click menu Edit Alarm Configuration in the Active Alarms view of the Monitoring perspective: allows you to edit only the threshold selected.
You can use the Filter Thresholds icon () to modify the Threshold Alarm Configuration view to prevent communication link status, user-created thresholds, thresholds with 'Enabled' set to 'No', and thresholds of any severity from appearing in the view.
