MindConnect Edge Analytics

What's new?

  • License UX Improvements (Remove of licenses is now possible).

Known issues

  • Note: A full configured monitoring of the Analyzing Packages Vibration Characteristic Values and Vibration Frequency Spectra with all channels of one SM1281 can exceed the CPU performance of the MindConnect Nano. Also in other scenarios dependent of tasks running in parallel on the MindConnect Nano, CPU load can get to high. The recommendation is to use only two full configured Vibration Frequency Spectra Analyzing Packages in parallel.

  • Note: A compatibility check, whether the Edge Analytics Engine version on the target MindConnect Nano supports all possible types of Analyzing Packages, which are offered by EAM, is not yet done. Therefore it has to be made sure that the newest firmware version is installed on the MindConnect Nano when using the new Analyzing Package Vibration Frequency Spectra, otherwise the Edge Analytics Engine will suspend.
