Objectives

  • Create a PI Vision dashboard using dynamic symbols.
  • Add Multi-State behavior to symbols
  • Reuse the PI Vision dashboard for multiple Assets

 

Problem Description

You would like to view details of each tank in your Production Area. With your large knowledge in PI Vision, you know that we don’t need to create a new display for each Tank. We can easily use the Asset Swap functionality so that we only need to build one display and then re-use it for each tank. If you are using your own data, do this exercise with your asset.

Approach

Step 1: Build a PI Vision display including the following symbols:

Mixing Tank1

Measurement

Display Symbol

Asset Name

Value

Asset Location

Value

Internal Temperature

Value (Multi-State)

External Temperature

Value (Multi-State)

Installation Date

Value

Internal Temperature

Table

External Temperature

Level

Trend

Level_Forecast

Percentage Full

Vertical Gauge (Multi-State)

Pressure

Radial Gauge (Multi-State)

Product

Table

Diameter

Height

Density

 

  1. What is the Maximum External Temperature for Mixing Tank1 over the last 12 hours? _____________
  2. What is the Minimum Internal Temperature for Mixing Tank1 over the last 12 hours? _____________

   (Hint: Tables in PI Vision allow you to add columns for showing the maximum and minimum values).

 

Step 2: Add shapes and images to the display

Step 3: Reuse the same display to monitor the other tanks

    1. What is the Maximum External Temperature for Mixing Tank2 over the last 12 hours? _____________
    2. What is the Minimum Internal Temperature for Storage Tank2 over the last 12 hours? _____________

 

Step 4: Save the display as <Initials>_Tank Details

 

Bonus: Create navigation links from the previous exercise (Dashboard with Collections) to this display. Ensure each collection member and each row of the table navigates to this display with the proper context. We will cover navigation in more detail after this exercise.

 

An example solution is below. This is only an example, there are many possible solutions!
