Release 11 - New updates of Tekon IoT Platform
The development of new release has been completed and will be available shortly.
Tekon Electronics finished the new release of Tekon IoT Platform, with the introduction of new features that aim to improve configuration and implementation processes of monitoring systems. The new updates also opened the door for customizing Tekon IoT Platform image.
On release 11, you can count on the following developments:
- Customization of Tekon IoT Platform image
- Credit of SMS service
- Data upload limit by datasource
- Graphic bands
- Bulk alarms
Customization of the Tekon IoT Platform
The introduction of customizable fields allows to adapt the graphic appearance and identification of platform instance to the organization/company that acquired the solution. Users can now enter a logo, favicon and footer information, which can include the company name and a link to the company page.
Check SMS service credit/balance
Services of SMS notification have an associated balance, either in numeric or in the number of SMS's available. Since this is a service external to the Tekon IoT Platform, it is important to be able to aggregate this information and make it accessible to managers/users, without leaving the platform to consult it.
Data upload limit by datasource
Resource optimization and performance improvement were also equated to provide a better user experience of Tekon IoT Platform. In this release, was introduced a minimum data reception interval by datasource, in order to be able to better manage resources and data collection needs. Data management ensures the quality of the service as well as its availability.
With this communication imposition, the data from datasources are assimilated according to the established minimum communication period.
If we have a datasource with a communication period of 10 seconds and data upload limit is 300 seconds (5 minutes), the data that is registered on the platform are those with a spacing of 5 minutes (after the first entry) between reception period. All other values are ignored and are not listed on Tekon IoT Platform.
The graphical representation of registered variables is one of the features of Tekon IoT Platform. Graphs with a timeline help to interpret variables behaviour and know more about the process. In addition to visualizing the variations in the registered data, it is now possible to include graphic bands that allow the marking of value ranges relevant to the process that is being monitored. With this feature, immediate analysis is enhanced with new indicators:
- Prompt perception of process state
- More information about deviations
In the process of configuring advanced analysis or a periodic report, it is possible to define bands that will be represented in the generated graphics.
The alarm configuration menu and options was reformed. The new developments allow the creation of bulk alarms, replicating and applying the same configuration, to multiple variables. In the same alarm, it is possible to chose several datasources and variables that are intended to be grouped in the configuration.
In this way, the process of creating alarms for variables with identical characteristics and reference values is simplified and streamlined, reducing the time to implement the solution. The simultaneous creation of similar alarms results in immediate benefits for the user:
- Reduce configuration time
- Reduce probability of errors occurring in the configuration process
New developments are already underway, which aim to continue the continuous improvement of Tekon IoT Platform's features and capabilities. We are starting to work on the release 12 that we expect to announce during the next quarter.
