Monitored Assets are assigned to sensors and OneVue intelligently links the sensor reading data to its assigned Monitored Asset. This structure allows a sensor to be moved from one asset to another. Therefore, all reading data is unique to the asset, regardless of the current sensor or previous sensors assigned to the asset.
A Monitored Asset may be a piece of equipment with contents, a room, or an area. A Monitored Asset identifies what a sensor is monitoring.
Go to Monitoring > Monitored Assets.
From the bottom menu, select + New.
To view all settings, select Show Advanced Options.
Enter its settings.
What are you monitoring?
Name of the Monitored Asset
The name of the Monitored Asset. Allows up to a maximum of 50 characters.
Monitored Asset Name and voice alerts: The pronunciation of abbreviations, acronyms, and numbers are read as a single word. Insert spaces or periods between each letter or number to ensure the Name is pronounced clearly. Example: Monitored Asset Name contains “MR ED” as the abbreviation for Magnetic Resonance Imaging - Emergency Department. Voice alert will state “Mister ED” and recommended to enter M.R.E.D. or M R E D. Voice alert with "Room 12345" in the Monitored Asset Name will be pronounced as "Room twelve thousand three hundred forty-five", be sure to include a space between numbers.
Label Information printed on the label affixed to the device. By default set to the first 20 characters of the Name. Allows up to a maximum of 20 characters.
Commonly provides additional information needed to share with system users.
Next, assign the Monitored Asset to a sensor.
Complete this procedure when you need to assign a sensor to a Monitored Asset.
A Monitored Asset is what a sensor is monitoring and each asset is required to be assigned to a sensor. OneVue links the sensor readings and operating condition data to its assigned Monitored Asset, which generates the asset's reading and state history.
Before you begin, be sure the Monitored Asset is available in OneVue. If you need to create a new Monitored Asset, see Create a Monitored Asset.
Go to Devices > Sensors. A list of sensors is displayed and the Monitored Asset column indicates if an asset is assigned to the sensor.
Select the Sensor Type link of the sensor to be assigned to the Monitored Asset. Its profile is displayed.
From the Monitored Asset drop-down list, select the Monitored Asset.
Select Save. All subsequent reading and device operating data is linked to the sensor's assigned Monitored Asset.
Once a sensor is assigned to a Monitored Asset, it's critical to verify the sensor settings meet the conditions of the asset being monitored.
