Flir Validity FilterΒΆ

The foglamp-filter-Flir-Validity plugin is a simple filter that filters out unused boxes and spot temperatures in the Flir temperature data stream. The filter also allows the naming of the boxes such that the data points added to the asset will use these names rather than the default box1, box2 etc.

Adding the filter to a Flir AX8 south plugin you will receive a configuration screen as below


The JSON document Area Labels can be used to set the labels to use for each of the boxes and replace the min1, min2 etc. The value of this configuration option is a JSON document that has a single element called areas which is a JSON array. Each element in that area is the name to assign to the particular box. The default values would set the name of box1 to simply be 1, box2 to 2 etc.

If we assume we are monitoring a lathe with the camera and taking the temperature of the motor, the bearing and cutting bit using the boxes 1, 2, and 3 in the camera. We wish to rename the first box to be called Motor, the second box to be called Bearing and the third to be called Tool, setting an areas array as follows would achieve this.

    "areas" : [

Note that we do not change the boxes 4 to 10 as these are not in use and have not been defined within the area interface. Using the above configuration setting for areas will result in asset names of minMotor, maxMotor and averageMotor being generated for the motor temperature. Similarly the bearing temperatures would be minBearing, maxBearing and averageBearing. The tool would have asset names of minTool, maxTool and averageTool.
