Hello Seeq, I have a bad actor pump that requires relatively frequent maintenance and replacement. I am using a flow measurement in Seeq to indicate whether my pump is operating or not but I'm having trouble creating a new signal that captures the running hours/days of my pump at any given time. I was able to use Signal from Condition to give me each operating periods total duration (see attached) but I'm looking for a more continuous signal. Please let me know if there is a way to accomplish this in Seeq.
Frequently asked question: How do i highlight capsules? I am looking at quite a few capsules in capsule time, is there any way i can compare or highlight a few of them against the rest to compare performance? Lets say i want to look at the most recent batch compared to all batches in the last month, look at one start up or shut down against several historical, or any number of other reasons why we might want to compare capsules in Capsule Time. Luckily, this is easy in Seeq! While in capsule time, simply select one or several capsules in the capsule pane to highlight them against the rest: Alternatively, if you do not know the date of the problem capsule but you can tell that it stands out, you can just click on it in the display pane to highlight it and it will be selected in the capsule pane for you to dig into further! If you want to un-select one of the highlighted capsules in capsule time, just click on it again and it will be dimmed. Image captured in Seeq R21.043
In the course of building an analysis and experimenting you may create multiple signals and conditions you don't need. Clicking the 'x' in the Details pane will only remove them from the list but not from Seeq. As a result, when you go to create a new signal/condition and give it the same name you'll see the message 'An item with this name already exists.' This inevitably leads to the following two questions... How do I find the item? All signals and conditions can be searched for from the Data tab. Here are a few helpful hints to remember... Make sure to hit the Reset button to clear all filters and make sure you are searching from the top level and not within an asset tree. With the help of regex you can return only exact matches.... /^TAG NAME$/ For more information check out the Seeq Knowledge Base article Basic Searching and Filtering. How do I delete the item? One you find the item, add it to the Display. You can then select Item Properties and the red trash can. For more information on Item Trash check out the Seeq Knowledge Base article Item Trash.
FAQ: All of my tag names are complicated combinations of letters and numbers. Is there a way that I could save my tags with useful names to use in later analyses without using the "available outside this analysis" check box? Solution: One popular way to do this is to create a dummy analysis where all you do is create aliases for your frequently used signals. Then, when you want to do an analysis using these tags, you can duplicate your dummy analysis, and begin a new analysis with all of your tags already having useful names. To create your new signal, open a Seeq Formula window and change the title to the alias that you want to give your particular tag. Then set the value of this new signal equal to the existing signal. See screenshot attached for an example using Seeq Formula to create an alias of "South Bridge-wall Temperature" for the tag-name "RK.HFGY_36_R901.PV". Additionally, if you have many like assets you would like to do this for, you may want to consider looking into asset groups. Content Verified DEC2023
