Highlights in DATALOGGER: Integrated KNXnet/IP Server – Recording of telegram traffic – Monitoring of IP and KNX participants – Data export as CSV or XLS – 8 GB eMMC memory
The DATALOGGER V2 is the tool for data recording, control and optimisation of automated environments based on KNX.
Thanks to high-efficient hardware, the DATALOGGER V2 also processes large amounts of data (8 GB mSATA2). Based on MySQL, it not only stores the data internally but also in an external database, thus increasing the available data volume. If desired, certain group address ranges can be defined so that only the relevant data is recorded.
On demand, the DATALOGGER V2 monitors any IP and KNX subscribers which are determined via IP or physical addresses and informs the administrator about the connection status. In addition, it is possible to monitor values of individual KNX group addresses. The conditions for notifications of value overruns or underruns are freely definable. The complete recording and the automatic export function of the DATALOGGER V2 are ideal instruments for analyzing processes in automation environments. Faulty KNX applications or incorrect programming can be investigated in no time at all. The «Top 10 function» provides immediate information about the most frequently sent KNX group addresses and thus helps to identify optimization potentials.
AUTOMATED EXPORT FUNCTION
Once set up, the DATALOGGER V2 performs its tasks automatically: the data can be recorded and exported in defined cycles by e-mail. Warning messages are issued immediately if there is insufficient memory. Using the ETS4/5 project information, the DATALOGGER V2 structures the recorded data independently.
WEB BASED CONFIGURATION
The multiplatform web interface for configuration simplifies commissioning and enables an intuitive and fast application of important functions, such as setting up e-mail dispatch, user administration and external database connection.
The DATALOGGER V2 is not only used for recording and monitoring – it also offers IP router functionality. The DATALOGGER V2 offers three functions in one device. This reduces the initial costs considerably.
DATA ANALYSIS MADE EASY
For efficient data analysis, the DATALOGGER V2 offers a targeted export according to time period and group address ranges. The values of the telegrams are automatically scaled during ETS file import and thus form the basis for an exact data analysis based on a CSV, XLS or XML file.
The web interface itself also offers the possibility to view an overview of the database and statistics on KNX telegrams and devices.
EXAMPLE: DATALOGGER AS IP ROUTER
EXAMPLE: DATALOGGER V2 AS KNX/TP PARTICIPANT
Equipped with a KNXnet/IP server, the DATALOGGER V2 offers IP router functionality simultaneously. It collects the data via KNXnet/IP routing and from its own KNX line. The required data is automatically exported in XLS or CSV format once a day, week or month by e-mail. Thanks to KNXnet/IP tunneling, the DATALOGGER V2 is also the programming interface for the ETS.
Connected to the twisted pair bus, the DATALOGGER V2 records all desired KNX telegrams and stores them in its internal MySQL database. The data is exported in CSV or XLS format to the SDMODULE. For the export, no access to the web interface is necessary. The data export takes place automatically in the preset cycle. The written data carrier can be removed for evaluation and replaced by a new one.
The setting “keep configuration” must be changed to “keep network configuration” or “reset configuration” in order to install the update! This must only be done for this update. Further updates will be able to “keep the configuration”. After the update the ETS Project must be loaded into the DATALOGGER again. Restoring it from a Backup is not sufficient, as the ETS Project import has been overhauled.
