The Device Graph tool allows you to quickly and chart a graph for a single device (see Group Graph to graph multiple devices). You can also create new graph configurations to instantly view charts that best suit your needs, with your desired data values, timeframe and customization.
Note: The appropriate security permissions must be granted to your user account by your site administrator, in order to utilize the eLynx Graphing functionality.
You can quickly navigate to the Device Graph from a Summary Listing page, by clicking the Device Graph icon in the Shortcuts column, or by right-clicking next to the Device Name and choosing Device Graph from the available options.
Note: If your Shortcuts column is missing, you can enable this feature by going to Settings in User Profile & Settings.
Navigate to the Device Details page of the device you wish to graph, then click the Device Graph icon from the side menu.
If default tags have been selected (Defaults tab of the Device Details page), or a default Graph configuration has been set to the device, this will auto populate on the Device Graph page. If neither exist, the page will read No data found.
From the toolbar, you can select/view an existing configuration by clicking the drop-down selection.
To create a new graph configuration, click the three small dots in the upper right corner, and select "Create New"
Building a Graph
For this example, let’s build a New Graph. Clicking the “New Graph” button at the top right will bring us to the Format Graph page:
Each Graph is built using at least one Section. Each Section is initially created with defaults for the Name, Duration, and Y-Axes settings. You are free to change these at any time, though we advise you to set these options from the beginning if possible. Once you are ready to begin editing, click the “Edit Contents” button to move into building the Section:
You will be taken to the Select Contents page, where you can choose to include data for Tanks in the Section. This choice defaults to “No”, but you can elect to include Oil, Water, or both types of Tanks. Once you’ve made your selections, click the “Select Data” button at the bottom right to move on to the next step:
On Select Data, you will choose the Data Values you want to see in the Graph. You can use the Filter, or “View Selected Data Values” to narrow the list of available Values. Once you’ve selected at least one Value, the “Data Options” button will be enabled at the bottom right, prompting you to the next step:
On the Data Options page, you will choose how you would like to see the data for each Value. Once you’ve selected the options you want to use for each Value, the “Preview” button at the top right will become active, allowing you to see what the final result will look like with the current options. The “Format Data Series” button will also be enabled at the bottom right:
On the Format Data Series Page, you can use the drag-and-drop handles on the left side of each Data Series to rearrange their order. You have the option of defining Color, Chart Type, Line Style, and Marker for each Value, and you can also add an Optional Display Name. All of these options will have defaults, so you don't need to make any adjustments. Clicking the “Format Graph” button at the bottom right will complete the configuration for the Section:
From the Format Graph page, you can add additional Sections or jump back into editing the Section we just built and edit the Axes options, or choose to save our Graph. Notice the “Save As New” button at the bottom right is now enabled.
Choosing the Save option will prompt you to give the Graph a name:
Once you give the Graph a name, the system will close the menu and automatically plot the Graph:
