Adcon Device Browser Widget

The EQuIS Live - Adcon Device Browser widget lets the user browse an Adcon addVANTAGE Pro server configuration using the Adcon addUPI web service API. Icons indicate which devices are already active (i.e., data are being loaded into EQuIS Live) and which are not. When the user is signed in, the widget will look as shown below. The user can browse through the tree to check which series are available for each logger, and activate and deactivate the loggers.

Activate / Deactivate Loggers

 

Live-Adcon_Device_Widget-Activated_Logger

 

A device that shows the green icon Live-Logger-Green_Add is currently registered and active in EQuIS Live, and data are being automatically loaded into EQuIS Live. Right-click an active device and select Deactivate to stop loading data from that device. Existing data will remain in the EQuIS Live database, but no new data will be loaded until the device is activated again.

 

A device that shows the red add icon Live-Logger-Red_Remove is not currently active. This can be because the device has never been added to the EQuIS Live system or the device was added previously, but is currently inactive (no data are being loaded). Right-click the device name and select Activate to activate the device and begin loading data.
