FloBoss Setup

From SCADACore Knowledge Base
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Setting up a Floboss for the 100, 300, and 500 series meters is the same process. The only difference is the TLPs for the Meter Report and the Instant data will be different. Multirun FB103s and FB107s will need slightly different TLPs for the Meter Report and the Instant TLPS for the 2nd runs.

Alarm and Event Data is shared between all runs and it is recommended to duplicate the Alarm and Event data for each run so it is connected to the meter as a location.

Create Location

Add a new location under a specified location folder by clicking on the location folder and clicking:

“Add Location” Button

Click on the newly created Location:

Under the Main Tab of the Location enter the location name and Timezone of the location:

DataGroups

Floboss-setup-datagroups-00.png

Under the DataGroups tab a basic install will have a minimum of 5 Datagroups

1. Instant This is a simple report data will be polled converted to UTC and stored in the database. Time will be displayed in the Location’s timezone. Time is timestamped as the “time of poll” not read from the device.

2. Daily Daily reports read the historical value from the floboss, timestamps are read from the floboss. If the client chooses to keep the timestamped value of the meter you can keep it as a “Report”.

3. Meter Report The Meter Report is a special identifier that allows SCADACore Live to summarize the meter reports and perform bulk updates.

4. The FBAlarms will be read as a “Static” function where it reads the data as a pre-built structure. It is important to name the sensor names the same each time.

5. The FBEvents will be read as a “Static” function where it reads the data as a pre-built structure. It is important to name the sensor names the same each time.

Create Device and Package

Click on the location name and create a new Package:


Floboss-setup-devices-package-00.png


Names of the package are not used internally they are used to keep track of the devices that are attached to the location

Create a new Device by click on the package and choosing: “Add Device”:

Adding Floboss Device To the Package

Your tree should look like the following:

DataGroup Setup

Under the Device node of the tree we can add the Sensors to each of the DataGroups.

FBEvents

FBEvents must have the following Data points as it is a structured data poll.

FBAlarms

FB Alarms also needs a specified data structure it is a structured data poll all data will come in with the format below.

Daily Poll Function

Daily History Function

Parameter = number of days to poll.

Test Poll:

Should be one value for each Register

Control (PID, Softpoints etc)


Appendix

Finding Run Numbers and TLPS

TLPS are split up as Type, Logical, Parameter

The logical number will change when there are multiple runs/analogs

For example

Analog input logical 64 is Battery Voltage

Analog input logical 19 is Casing Pressure

3,64,14 gives the instanenous reading for Battery Voltage

3,19,14 gives the instantenous reading for the Casing Pressure.


Setting Up TLPs

Getting Historical TLPs

Historical FB300 There are multiple histories for FB300 and FB500 but most of the time only History 1 is used:

Floboss-setup-tlp-00.png


Subtract 1 from the point number to get the Daily “Register” for SCADACore.

Getting Instantaneous TLPs

In the TLP Selector you can see the TLP at the bottom 10,0,3 and the type next to it FL=Float

Look up Clock variables for

TimeMinutes, TimeHours, TimeYear, TimeMonth

These to not change for the additional runs they are always the same
