Data Interface - SIPLUS SM1281 WAV

With the SIPLUS SM1281 WAV Interface you can receive vibration raw data from wave files for usage with Analysis Models.

The wave files can be exported from the SM1281 Device and dropped into a network share folder of the MindConnect Software Agent (HyperV).

For information about how to export wave files from a SM1281 Device, please refere to its manual at the chapter export wave files.

To be able to import wave files to Edge Analytics, the file transfer feature of the MindConnect Software Agent needs to be enabled.

For detailed information about how to do so, please follow the instructions to enable the file transfer.

As soon as a SIPLUS SM1281 WAV Interface configuration has been downloaded to the Edge Device, a folder named "EdgeAnalyticsFileInput" is created in the file transfer folder of the Software Agent.

This folder is dedicated for to be imported files by Edge Analytics.

To be imported wave files need to be dropped into this folder and will then be processed by Edge Analytics.

Later on, when using the Data Interface within an Analysis Model, it is important to define unique File References for each file within the corresponding Data Source Extension of the Analysis Model.

These File References are used to identify the different files.

After processing, the files will be deleted.
