Packet Power EMX Monitoring Software Dashboard Enhancements

Posted on Thursday, February 6, 2020 by Packet Power Team

Packet Power has enhanced the dashboard feature of its EMX Energy Portal. EMX is the easiest, fastest path to energy and environmental monitoring insights. The cloud service or locally installed software delivers real-time and historical information with built-in and customizable reports. Dashboard functionality enables the creation of custom, graphical views that can be securely shared.

Here's an overview of the latest dashboard enhancements. 

Set color ranges for chart backgrounds
Instead of a white background for line and bar graphs, you can choose to display green, yellow and orange backgrounds by range of readings. This allows a quick view of nodes exceeding their expected range.

Consolidate nodes within a chart
There may be times you don't need to display individual node data points within a chart. You can now consolidate multiple nodes within a single data point The chart will automatically calculate new min/max/avg values.

Position objects more precisely within the dashboard
You can position gauges and charts within a dashboard by dragging and dropping. And you can resize an object by dragging its corner in or out. These capabilities may not offer the precision desired so more granular positioning and sizing options have been added. You can specify exact X and Y coordinates and object size in pixels.Packet Power EMX Dashboard Resize and reposition objects
Represent alert status as a gauge
Dashboard gauges have been expanded to enable representing node alert statuses as a type of state gauge. This provides a graphical view of critical operating states in addition to EMX's standard email alerts.
