The UPS Client Display is the main interface for the UPSView software. The UPSView interface displays the data for the system. Each telemetry data point is a separate tile that may be configured to display data in one of the following methods:
- Bar Graph
- Scrolling History Graph
Floating Point Tiles
Floating Point Tiles describe the fluctuations within set parameters. These parameters include the following: temperatures, voltages and currents.
Floating Point Tiles can be viewed in three different ways:
- Small Tile
- Bar Graph
- Line Graph
Small Tile - This view of the Tile will only show the current telemetry data. This information is updated two times per second. The color of the data indicates the status of that telemetry channel. Green is OK. Yellow is a warning. Red is an error.
Bar Graph - When the upper left button on the tile is selected, the tile will expand into a bar graph that displays the same information but in a different format.
Line Graph - Open the Line graph by clicking the upper right-hand button that is located in the upper left-hand corner. The bar graph is displayed with the histogram. The Line graph displays the history of the tile. All line graphs are accessible to the crosshairs. Refer to the "Crosshair" section below. Approximately 2 minutes of information are stored in the graph.
Three Phase Tile are displays that are identical to Floating Point Tiles, except that all three phases of the telemetry channel are displayed in one tile.
Note: The Bar graph is not available when crosshairs are use in the graphs. Refer to the "Crosshair" section below. The Left hand Three Phase Tile demonstrates a line graph without a crosshair. By placing the crosshairs on the image, the bar graph disappears. The bar graph is substituted with a variable display that is dependent upon time. Refer to the "Crosshair" section below.
Status tiles display the status of the system. If the colored light is green, the function is on. If the colored light is red, the function is off. In order to display the information as a graph, click the square in the top left corner of the tile.
Note: There is no bar graph that is available for this tile.
Expanded Status Tile
Expanded Status Tile
An abbreviation is located below each of the lights. The abbreviation correlates to the name of the status list. When the tile is expanded, the full name of the Status List is displayed. The names are located to the left of the scrolling history graph.
Integer tiles display integer telemetry that is stored in the UPS. These telemetry channels are usually counters.
Note: There is not a bar graph or a line graph that is available for this tile.
The text tile displays the following information: "System Mode", "System Date", "System Time" and "System State".
Note: There is not a bar graph or a line graph that is available for these tiles.
A crosshair is used to examine a displayed signal. The crosshair will show the actual value and the time that the value was present. To access the crosshair, move the cursor into the graph of a tile. You can move the crosshair with the mouse or the arrow keys. In order to change the scrolling history graph back to a bar graph, click the second square in the top left corner of the tile. When the crosshairs are active, crosshairs will open in all line graphs. When you place the crosshairs on a target tile, the crosshairs will be shown as blue. The position of the crosshair will determine the reading that is received of the other open tiles at that position and at that moment in time. This feature allows the user to view any changes that have taken place in the system over time or at any one particular moment in time.
Text messages from UPSView contain information on the status of the system. This information is displayed by color coding. The severity of the information can be determined by the color of the text.
Green - The information that is shown in green represents the present status of the system with no warnings.
Yellow - The information that is shown in yellow contains important information. This warning indicates problems within the system. These problems should be repaired promptly.
Red - The information that is shown in red on the text display is a direct warning that shows the precise nature of the system fault. If this information is not remedied, and if the fault is of a serious nature, the system will automatically shut down.
Note: A buzzer may sound indicating a fault in the system.
Customizing the display window
The Default Display
Each telemetry data line is displayed on a graphic tile. The user can customize the window. The tiles can be arranged in several different ways. The user can group the tiles. The user can hide the tiles.
The user can move the tiles. The format can be saved to a file for future use.
Changing the Format of the Tile
Each tile has two buttons in the top left corner. See Illustration 13. When you do not click a button, the data is displayed in a numerical format. Clicking the left button displays a bar graph. Clicking the right button displays a line graph.
Moving a Tile
To move an individual tile, simply drag and drop the tile to a new location in the display window. To rearrange the order of the tiles, one tile must be dropped in the desired location. The new tile can also appear at the end of the list of tiles.
In the default display window, UPSView organizes all of the tiles into eight groups. The groups are separated by lines in the display window. The groups are listed in the "Telemetry" menu. The groups are specified according to the first tile in the group. Organize the tiles by moving a tile to a desired location. UPSView will automatically update the groups that are under the "Telemetry" menu.
To hide an individual tile, find the name of the tile under the "Telemetry" menu. Select the desired tile in the menu. To hide an entire group of tiles, select the desired group under the "Telemetry" menu.
Note: An alternate method of hiding a group of tiles is to double click on the line above that group in the display windows.
