Paste the ID you copied from the device’s configuration screen into the Device UUID text field. Once that is done, the Input Type can be set.
There are two main types of inputs signals (equipment outputs) on Caddis devices. The first is “pulsed”. Pulsed means that the Caddis device will only see a momentary signal from the equipment/machine each cycle. The signal is not sustained. When a pulse is detected the machine is set as running and a cycle is logged. An algorithm detects when the machine has gone down, which can add some inaccuracy to utilization numbers in some cases. The second input signal type is “sustained”. This type of signal is on when the equipment is running, and off when it is down. This is the preferred signaling type because there is no inaccuracy introduced through the use of an algorithm. The most common example of a sustained signal that can be provided to the Caddis device is that of a stack light. A solid green light will normally indicate that a machine is running and when that light is off, the equipment is down.
Caddis devices can also accommodate alternative signal pattern schemes, such as flashing signals, or two signals working together to denote a running status.
If you are unsure what input type to choose for your machine, please contact CADDIS support for help.
