Import of logger data into ESdat requires the "LoggerSync" subscription. If your Data Logger has telemetry and can transfer data via Secure FTP then logger data can be automatically transferred into ESdat.
Logger Data is configured under Setup - Data Importers.
You need to configure an importer in ESdat to match the format of the data file. This is set up under Data Importers.
A single importer can be used for multiple data loggers if they have the same file format and data columns.
To create a new Data Importer:
Once the wizard is completed the details of the Importer will be shown as below. You can modify the Data Columns, Parameter Name and Units.
Each Importer will need to have a Data Source specified, even if you intend to manually upload the data.
If you are using ESdat Online or a could hosted instance of ESdat you can use the ESdat Secure FTP server. To do this the steps are:
If you are using your own FTP Server you should create a new Data Source and you will need to enter your FTP login details into ESdat, as shown below.
Once you have completed the FTP information you will need to click "Configure" to enter the Project and Location the data at that Data Source relates to.
Once the Data Source is set up you can click "Test" to confirm it is working.
To allow the logger data to be manually loaded:
ESdat will now check the FTP Server every few minutes for new data and validate and import the data.
If a validation error is encountered in importing logger data a Notification will be sent to Project Managers and Admins and the data and an error flag will be shown under Logs/Queue.
