Edit datapoints and write setpoints

The following chapter describes how to edit tags of datapoints and write setpoints using the Data Inspector.

Edit datapoints

By clicking on the three menu items in the datapoint lists, datapoints can be edited. The description can be added or edited if none is available in the building automation. Additionally, tags can be edited.

  3. Below the tag list, select from existing values and keys or add your own free text as you wish
  4. Confirm your extension by clicking on "+"
  5. The new tag has been saved
  6. Delete manually stored tags (source user) by clicking on the trash can icon

Our system evaluates the tags set to define a system-wide unit. By manually setting the tag units with the corresponding unit of the data point, this information is available to our system. As described in our API guide, there is a hierarchy of tags from which the system-wide unified tags are derived. The units set manually by the user are always preferred. By defining a single unit for a data point from the existing tags, conversions to other unit systems are now possible.

Write setpoints

You can write setpoints to the automation system within predefined limits and priorities. There is a history display of all written setpoints.
