Description

You can analyze and evaluate residual current violations with the RCM (residual current monitoring) report. You receive critical statistics regarding threshold violations with general and graphically highlighted overviews. The function "RCM Report" includes:

  • The setting of up to 4 threshold levels.
  • The support of dynamic thresholds (RCM measuring devices).
  • The optimized report for residual currents (L5, L6, UMG 20CM)
  • The visual highlighting of the overall result.
  • The choice between 2 design templates and export in PDF and XLS formats.

 

 


Please note!

Recorded values (historical values) from your RCM–enabled measuring device are required to configure your RCM report! Janitza measuring devices that support RCM measurement, and thus the RCM report:

  • UMG 20CM
  • UMG 96RM-E
  • UMG 96RM-PN
  • UMG 509
  • UMG 512

Configuration of an RCM report

Configure the RCM report as follows:

  • Right-click on the directory "Exports & Reports" in the "Projects" window and In the context menu that opens, click on the entry "Create Data Export."
  • The assistant starts "Configure New Data Export":

Step "Select Script":

Pos.Parameter/FunctionDescription
1Option list "Script"

Selection of the script for the RCM report:

  • RCM report
2Description of the script

Function description of the RCM report (export script):

  • Critical statistics of the threshold violations.
  • Support of devices with dynamic functionality of threshold violations (e.g. UMG96RM-E).
  • Status overview with signal colors for a general overview.

Step "Select Devices":

Pos.Parameter/FunctionDescription
1Entry field "Filter"
  • Search and sort filter function.
  • Useful for larger numbers of measuring devices (measurement sites).
2Checkbox "Devices"
  • Devices with a marked checkbox are included in the evaluation (report).

 

Note: Depending on the device type, based on the available values, the RCM data export decides whether a device can provide RCM or not. If in the device selection devices of the above supported device types are missing, they have most likely not yet been synchronized. After a synchronize, they should be visible in the device selection window of the data export.

Pos.Parameter/FunctionDescription
1Entry fields overall evaluation (traffic light evaluation)
"", "", ""

The overall evaluation shows the number of measurement points (measurements) with threshold violations. Depending on the set number of measurement points (measurements), the corresponding traffic light will appear in the RCM report.

  • The symbols ">=" are fixed permanently in front of the digit. The digit is configurable.

Presets (Example: "Traffic Light Evaluation"):

  • Traffic light "green":>= 0- Every measurement passed the evaluation.
  • Traffic light "yellow": >=1- For more than - 1 measurement outside the thresholds - the "yellow" traffic light will appear in the RCM report.
  • Traffic light "red": >=2- For more than - 2 measurements outside the thresholds - the "red" traffic light will appear in the RCM report.
2Entry field/ Option list "Tolerance Threshold 1"
