The app provides all relevant information needed to maintain and optimize vacuum lifters. Dedicated detail pages for every major part of the device give insights how the machine is handled right now, and in the past.

Dashboard

The Dashboard provides a top level overview of all parts of a single device and their status.

At a glance, each card has their most important key performance indicators for the relevant part.

Almost every card on this page is intractable to get more detailed information.

Timeframes

The data shown for the selected time range (Hour by default) is limited to the current Hour, Day, Week, Month or Year.

A change in the time frame affects only the four cards for the parts.

Example: If we have the date of 20.03.2021 14:23,

  • Hour will show data from 14:00 to 15:00

  • Today is from 20.03.2021 00:00 until 24:00

  • Week is from 22.03.2021 00:00 until 28.03.2021 00:00 (Monday through Sunday)

  • Month is from 01.03.2021 00:00 until 31.03.2021 00:00 (Considers leap years)

  • Year is from 01.01.2021 00:00 until 31.12.2021 24:00

The time frame selector behaves the same in all pages.

Metadata

The right sidebar contains metadata like Identification, Service appointments and the overall Equipment efficiency.

Identification

The information provided in Identification is partially provided by the user upon registration.

The MORE INFORMATION button offers full disclosure of all the details also visible on the sticker of the real hardware, like AB Number, Carry Weight, Production Date, Location and more. You can also navigate there using the TAB BUTTONS tab buttons on the top of the page.

Vacuum Generator - Details

The Vacuum Generator page shows the timeline and performance for various Timeframes (the same as mentioned before). Additionally, you can compare performance between the past five weeks.

Timeline navigation

The timeline shows events and their duration of the past two hours. You can set a start time or use the back and forward buttons to inspect another TimeRange.

The timeline is split into groups to show details of the On time. Here, the On time is split into max. vacuum, idle and operating.

If the back or forward buttons are grayed out, then there is no data on record for that device at that time.

The timeline lets you hover over the individual events to get to know their exact duration and what type of event occurred.

When picking a date and time through the inputs, a dialog appears that shows the available days when data was collected.

The blue zoom minimap highlights visually what part of the time frame you are inspecting currently.
When selecting a time to view the events, you can navigate around the visible data in different ways.

  • Zoom in or out using the mouse wheel.

  • Or by using the blue zoom minimap on the bottom of the chart.

  • You can either use one of the left or right pointers with drag and drop to extend or reduce the events shown.

  • The blue minimap bar can be dragged and dropped to move the selected time forwards or backwards.

  • You can select an entire new region by dragging and dropping in the area within the minimap.

Timeframes

The Timeframes card shows details about the time the vacuum generator was turned off or on. Like in the timeline, the on time is split into idle, max. vacuum and operating. These times add up to the On time.

Trends per week are calculated by taking the first and last half of the week so far and comparing their values.

Example: It is Wednesday 12:00 as you check the reports. The vacuum generator was On for a total of 20 hours from Monday 00:00 to Tuesday 18:00 and 15 hours from Tuesday 18:00 to Wednesday 12:00. Which results in a downwards trend.

Previous Weeks

Weeks are shown from current week to up to five past weeks. They show the same labels as Timeframes, just for different time ranges.
