About Station Settings
Once a station is included in a project, it is placed on the list of stations in the main project window. When a station is selected, basic station information will be displayed in the Station info panel.
The Station info panel information is read-only, but the following actions are available on it:
- Sync: collect station configuration directly from the station.
- Change Model: Frontboard model can be changed (only for Turbine stations). On Turbine Industrial station, it's also possible to change Accessory.
- Open StationWeb: open station interface in a web browser.
- Site: this setting is not applied on the station itself; it can be used to organize stations into sites from IMT.
- Description: this setting is not applied on the station itself; it can be used for a user-defined description in IMT.
Station info is not synchronized in real-time with the station, so there is an option to synchronize all information directly from the station by clicking the Sync… button. This option is very useful for checking whether the station has been changed since the last usage of IMT, without the need to go on the station web interface to see whether there are differences.
It's also possible to update station registration information for all stations in the project. To do that, click on the Check link an the left pane in the main IMT window. This will launch the check registration process.0
Once the process is done, close the window by clicking on the CLOSE button. Note that this will update information shown on Station info panel for all stations in the project.
In the Station settings panel, a list of setting groups available for the selected station is displayed.
Related settings are grouped together inside settings group. Settings groups can be collapsed or expanded by clicking on the +/- icon next to their name. To change a settings, simply input a new value a click on SAVE button.
Settings which are changed will be highlighted with orange background. If settings group has some settings changed, it will also be highlighted in orange.
Clicking on the DISCARD button will revert all local changes made in IMT on the selected station.
Multiple-select and Configure
It's also possible to change configuration on multiple stations at once. To do this, select multiple stations in the station list, either via Shift click or Ctrl click.
After that you will need to explicitly select which setting will be changed by checking the checkbox next to each setting you wish to change. Until this is done, control for changing the configuration value will be disabled.
|Only settings which are available for all selected station types will be shown, for example if both Turbine and INCA stations are selected, Turbine specific and INCA specific settings will not be shown.
The configuration Status panel will update the number of changed stations and these will be indicated by the color yellow in the list.
Settings can be changed on a larger number of stations and then applied by clicking the UPLOAD button on all stations at once.
After clicking the UPLOAD button, you will be presented with list of stations whose configuration will be changed. After reviewing the list, you can apply new configuration by clicking on the PUSH CONFIG button.
After configuration is completed, you will be presented with status for each station. Click on the CLOSE button to return back to main IMT window.
Profiles in IMT provide the possibility to define array of settings with their values that are commonly used. Defined array of settings can be applied to one or many stations at once with a single click.
Profiles are managed using Profile manager utility that can be accessed from Tools > Profile Manager
Created profile can be applied to any station in the project. User can apply it on one or many stations at once by selecting profile from drop-down list and clicking on Use Profile Values. Profile values are updated on selected stations and user can continue modifying station settings as when settings are changed one-by-one (without using profiles). Note: applied settings are locally stored in IMT database - for uploading configuration to stations user needs to use Upload function.
