Mango Automation Intro -1 Configuring Data Sources and Points
JoelHaggar last edited by
After you get Mango Automation installed and you log in, the first thing you will want to do is set up one or more Data Sources along with Data Points. To help you get started we will walk you through the steps to create a basic Virtual Data Source and Data Point and then discuss some of the finer points. You can follow these same steps to configure any other Data Source including, Modbus, BACnet, or others.
Add a new Data Source
Configure the Data Source settings
Each Data Source type will have unique settings
Add a new Data Point
Configure the Data Point settings
Configure the Universal Data Point Setting
Every Data Point has the following settings. (the settings will vary depending on the type of Data Point, Numeric, Binary, Alphanumeric)
Add a second Data Point
Add a Second Data Point just like the first one but with a different Name.
Activate your Data Points and Data Source
Enable the Data Source
Scroll to the top of the page
View your Data Points
Now it's time to view your Data Points. You can do this on the Point Detail page or the Watch List
The Point Details Page
On this page you can view all the information about each Data Point. Most areas are self explanatory but include: The Real Time value, Statistics, History Table, Chart, Events, and User permissions.
Most of the time you want to view more than one Data Point at a time. Click on the Watch List to view and create new Watch Lists.
