- Click on the icon “New Station File”
- You first need to name the pump station (General Information window).
- For a fast set up, click on “Create a general station”.
- In the Datalogger Device window, click on the text in blue “Select connected datalogger” or “Connection”. You then must select the port to connect your datalogger.
- In the “Simplified sensors setup” window, select the options that you used on the installation at the pump station. But in any case, you can still change it later. For example: 2 motors count, 3 phases, voltage input on motor 3, system WYE, standard sensors MLCT5-15-75 (choose between 5A, 15A and 75A).
- In the next window, select the appropriate power source.
- In the “Time” window, make sure to update the time and erase events of the recorder, especially if you intend to monitor different pump stations with the same datalogger.
- You can add the missing information afterwards, like the dimensions of the wells or the start and stop levels of the pumps.
Here are the steps to see if everything is working correctly:
- Click on the icon “Real Time” (you need to be connected to a datalogger to see real time values).
- If the Motor 3 is connect on Voltage sensors, it should always show something at M3 or on the Motor 3 dial.
- Check if each pump is detected by the Software. When a motor starts, you should see the needle of this motor moving. For example, if you choose to connect the MLCT5-15-75 (set to 75A) to the datalogger and the values showed in the dial are too small, it means that you should probably set the sensor to 15A.
- In the same window, check if the date and time are correct.
- In the same window, check also if the batteries are good. If there is no power supply connected to the data logger, be sure to have batteries over 2.6 volts for a few weeks of data logging.
- In the same window, when the rain gauge is connected, check if there is a pulse count recorded. You can simulate one by rocking.
To produce the reports, you need to download the events (click on the icon) while connected to the datalogger.
