I have an Allen Bradley PLC … I set up the datasource to link to it and I created several datapoints to get data from this plc and these all work. I can link the datapoints to gauges on my dashboard and they display the data correctly.
In my system I have three devices and all three have the sensors and devices attached to them. So I exported (used the bulk datapoint editor to export the file) the datapoints that I created for my PBR-01 in the data sources editor (these work) ...then I used excel to edit the CSV file to include a PBR-02
I have attached a screen shot of a simplified version of the CSV file (the one I exported, modified and imported has more data points than this .. I cut it down to just two points for simplicity of posting)
You can see the original PBR-01 data point is the first line.
The second line is a copy of the first line … I edited only the highlighted fields
I then imported this new CSV file using the bulk datapoint editor. It imported with no errors and I can see all of the new datapoints and they are all showing the link to the appropriate PLC tag. These new datapoints unfortunately do not retrieve data.
Here is a screen shot of my dashboard. The top gauge is linked to my PBR-01 datapoint that I created using the datasources data point editor. The bottom gauge is linked to my PBR-02 datapoint that was created by copying the PBR-01 row in my CSV file and changing the fields as shown above then importing using the buld datapoint editor.
You can see that the lower gauge shows a ? and no needle for the value. Looking into the datapoint history also just shows ?
Not sure why this isn't working. I have looked at this several times and can't see why it doesn't work.
