Mapping an aspect to a data source for MindConnect IoT2050

Data mapping means matching variables of an aspect with the respective data points of a data source.

  • Variables of an aspect represent the Industrial IoT data.
  • Data points of a data source represent the data of the MindConnect IoT2050.

To use the data of your MindConnect IoT2050 you have to map them to the respective variables of an aspect.

Requirement

You have created an asset based on your desired aspect and asset type.

Browser compatibility

Microsoft Edge browser do have some issues with the user interface (example: "Mapping"). Use another browser like, "Chrome" or "Firefox".

Data mapping can be done in following ways:

Map a variable to a data point by using in-cell mapping functionality

To map a variable to a data point by using in-cell mapping functionality, follow these steps:

  1. Select the asset in the "Assets" tab, for example: "Wind turbine1".
  2. Click the MindConnect IoT2050 Plugin icon.
  3. Click "No mapping available" to map a variable in the Data configuration view for the data points added. Data Mapping row
  4. Enter and select the variable to map the data point. link-variable-mcsa

Note

Only data types that match exactly with the aspects and variables are available. If they are different, the aspect can’t be connected to the data point.

Map a variable to a data point from "Advance Mappings" or "Datapoint Mapping" option

To map a variable to a data point by "Advance Mappings" or "Datapoint Mapping" option, follow these steps:

  1. Select the asset in the "Assets" tab, for example: "Wind turbine1".
  2. Click the MindConnect IoT2050 Plugin icon.
  3. Click "Datapoint Mapping" as shown in the image. Data Mapping option

To map a datapoint to a datasource by "Advance mapping", select the "Advance mapping" option on the Mindconnect IoT2050 plugin homepage. The below image displays the Advance mapping option.

4.Enter the variable to map in the Assets tab to select the variable and click "Add Mapping".
Data mapping option 1

In "Advance mapping", select the datapoint to be mapped in the datapoint window before selecting the variable.
Configure Data Mappings.

5.To map multiple data point, select an another variable to be mapped and click "Add Mapping".
Configure multiple mapping

Result

The data point is now mapped to the variable. User can also perform mappings for multiple datapoints.

The following graphic shows a data mapped variable:
