how to add custom units

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by guanyc on 2017-06-27


How to add custom units for ddf?

For example: resistance (Ω), capacitance (F)......

and, can  add loops in DDF?

I have a MODBUS device, many of which are repetitive.
for example
MonomerVoltage Group 01 address: 10000~10500
MonomerVoltage Group 02 address: 14000~14500
......
I want to compress these

Hi Guanyc,

 

I don't recommend editing the DDF files yourself. I have seen DDFs edited outside of the DDF team that have caused DCE to have issues up to and including failure to boot. If this happens, it is likely the only workaround will be to restore the system.

 

I suggest requesting a DDF or DDF edit through the device support menu above.

Hi guanyc,

Unfortunately, the DCE-server in the list of standard predefined units does not have the above-mentioned radio engineering values. The only such unit of measurement is microSiemens/cm (conductivity).

Therefore, in my practice, I simply add a unit of measurement to the label of the sensor, for example:

xmlDDF example<type>num</type> <label>Air flow setpoint, m3/h</label>

This is the easiest and fastest way to add a specific custom unit of measurement.

I will be glad to answer the questions.
