UOM conversion

Hi,

 

I'm sure we're facing the same issue many others have so I would like to have other members input on this. 

 

To take a classic example let’s say that we have some PI tags in Celsius and some others in Fahrenheit.

 

In AF, what is the best way to make a UOM conversion and output both UOMs? Whether we have Celsius or Fahrenheit we would like to output both so we always have the choice of displaying a value in a UOM or the other. I thought of creating a second attribute that would convert the value to the other UOM using a formula (Celsius to Fahrenheit or Fahrenheit to Celsius). But this means we need to create lots of new attributes. Is there a simpler way of achieving this?

 

Thanks
