2. Parameter Setting File Operation of New Monitoring Instrument

 

The following procedures for creating parameter setting file or opening and carrying operations on an existed one are standard:

 

2.1 /EstablishOpenProject

 

The set of configuration parameter setting file is called project or file which is usually named after monitoring system of monitored unit and has “.prj” as suffix of its name.

 

If project doesn’t exist, execute:

 

Project ——Create New

 

(If “Project” in menu is clicked, submenu list would pop up, then “Create New” in it should be clicked. It will be not specified in the following anymore.)

 

If project exists, execute:

 

Project ——Open

 

The window “Create New” (or “Open”) monitoring system parameter setting file group would pop up. And a configuration setting file folder (called “Project” in the following) can be created. Then it or an existing project should be opened.

 

 

Operation procedures are:

 

  • Chooses correct unit number in drop down list box of “Monitoring Unit Number”, for example “2#”;

 

  • Chooses correct unit type in drop down list box of “Monitoring Unit Number”, for example “turbine”;

 

  • Chooses correct system name in drop down list box of “Monitoring Unit Number”, for example “Thermal Protection System”;
  • Click “Confirm Selection”, and “Create” (“Open”) button will be usable.
  • For new project, the following may happenif “Create” is clicked:

 

If project exists (“2# Turbine Thermal Control Protection System .prj” file folder exists in list box at the lower part of window), “File Group Exists, Now Open” would pop up, and “Finish” will be available;

 

If project exists, a new “2# Turbine Thermal Control Protection System .prj” file folder will be created automatically, and “Finish” will be available;

 

For opening projects, the following may happen if “open” is clicked:

 

If project exists, “File Group Doesn’t Exists, Now Create” would pop up. After “Enter” is pressed, a new “2# Turbine Thermal Control Protection System .prj” file folder will be created automatically; and “Finish” will be available;

 

If project exists, “Finish” will be available;

 

  • · If “Finish” is clicked, “Create” (or “Open”) project operation will be finished and main interface would returns back; “Configuration” becomes usable, and name of opened project would appear in main interface state bar;

 

If “Project” is opened at this time, “Create New” and “Open” are unusable, and only “Close” is usable; thus if other projects need to be opened, “Close” the opened project and “Create New” and “Open” will become usable.

 

If “Cancel” is clicked during operation, all the operations will be cancelled and main interface returns back; “Configuration” menu would still be grey and unusable;

 

2.2

 

If parameter setting file doesn’t exist, execute:

 

Configuration——Create New

 

If parameter setting file exists, execute:

Configuration——Open

 

Now window “Create New (or Open) Instrument Parameter Setting File” as the following figure shows, would pop up. A new instrument parameter setting file can be created and opened or an existed one can be opened.

 

Operation procedures are:

 

  • Chooses correct monitoring number in dropdown list box of “Monitoring Number”, for example “01”;

 

Chooses correct monitoring name in dropdown list box of “Monitoring Name”, for example “DF2002 dual channel axial displacement monitor”;

 

Input correct monitor product ID which has 6-digit into text box “Product ID”; and there are obvious marks on terminal board in the rear of instrument, image side, CPU, mother board or connector usually;

For opening files, you can click relevant file in file text box on right side of widow directly;

 

 

  • If “Confirm Option” is clicked, name of parameter setting file which is to be created or opened would appear in text box “Save Name”: “01010327DF2002 Dual Channel Axial displacement .ini”, and “Create” (or “Open”) will be useable;

 

  • For creating new file, 3 conditions exist if “Create” is clicked:

 

If file exists (file “01010327DF2002 Dual Channel Axial displacement .ini” exists in file text box on right side of widow), “File Exists” would pop up, and “Open” and “Finish” will be usable;

 

If file doesn’t exists and another file which is of the same monitor number and product ID, for example, “01010327DF2002 Dual Channel Relative Expansion.ini”, exists in file text box on right side of widow, “Same Monitor Number and Product ID Existed, Please Choose Again” would pop up, and monitor number and product ID should be chosen again.

 

 

☆☆☆ Monitor number is unique in one unit; and product ID is in correspondence with each instrument and is inhering to the instrument.

 

 

 

If file doesn’t exist and there is no file which is of the same monitor number and product ID exists, file creation process will be entered. After a new file (for example, “07010327DF2002 Dual Channel Axial displacement .ini”) is created, “Finish” will be usable;

 

  • For opening file, the following may happen if “Open” is clicked:

 

If file doesn’t exists, “File Doesn’t Exists, Now Create” would pop up, and after “Enter” is pressed and another file which is of the same monitor number and product ID, for example, “01010327DF2002 Dual Channel Axial displacement.ini” exists in file text box on right side of widow, “Same Monitor Number and Product ID Existed, Please Choose Again” would pop up, and monitor number and product ID should be chosen again. If there is no file which is of the same monitor number and product ID, file creation process will be entered. After a new file (for example, “07010327DF2002 Dual Channel Axial displacement .ini”) is created, “Finish” will be available;

If file exists, “Finish” will be usable;

 

 

  • File creation process
