Configuration – Probes and Encoders¶
The Probe configuration page contains two sections. The left hand pane is called the dashboard and it allows you to select the desired group. The right hand pane provides a hierarchal view of the group, Probes and individual Encoders. In the Dashboard to the right of each group, is a number indicating how many Probes and Encoders are in the group.
At the top of the dashboard are three icons that allow you to create a new Group, rename a Group and delete a Group. Below that is a text search bar in case there are a large number of Groups.
Selecting a Group displays all the Probes and Encoders within each Group. The description under each Encoder lists its status. The color coded check mark makes it easy to quickly determine the status of each Encoder. Clicking on the Encoders associated with each Probe toggles the Encoder details display on/off. The triangle at the upper left corner of each Probe line changes from blue and pointing up (Encoder display on), to grey and pointing down (Encoder display off).
The status of each Probe and Encoder is displayed in text to the right of the name next to a color coded icon, green checkmark – all is well, red X Stopped or not accessible.
Hovering anywhere on the Probe line turns the background blue and display three icons in the upper right corner: Sync, Edit and Delete.
Sync – synchronizes the Probe. A pop up asks if you want to sync with Current or Previous. Selecting <Current> updates the Probe with the changes you just made to its configuration. Selecting <Previous> allows you to revert to the old Probe configuration. This comes in handy if the changes you made did not yield the desired results.
Edit Probe – same a clicking on the Probe name. This opens the Probe Edit window.
Delete – Removes entire Probe. This only applies to empty Groups when no Probes have been assigned.
