In the world of data analytics and visualisation, raw data doesn’t always present itself neatly. Sometimes, unexpected spikes or drops – anomalies – can skew interpretations. The Dashboards module in AlphaX offers a handy feature to handle these outliers without altering the raw data. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to set the value range to filter out anomalies.
Why Use the Value Range Feature?
The “Value Range” feature is designed to give users a clearer view of their data trends by filtering out anomalies. This ensures the data you view on your dashboard is representative of the standard operational conditions, making it easier to spot genuine trends or concerns.
Step-by-Step Guide to Setting the Value Range:
1. Access the Dashboards Module: Navigate to the Dashboards module on the main platform.
2. Dashboard Settings: On the top right of your dashboard toolbox, you’ll find the dashboard settings button (often represented with a gear or cog icon). Click on it.
3. Activate Value Range: A pop-up modal will appear. Within this modal, locate the “Enable Value Range” option towards the bottom. Click on the adjacent tick box to activate the feature.
4. Automatic Filtering: Once activated, the system will automatically apply a filter based on the anomaly limits set for the specific sensor type. This means any data point falling outside these limits will be excluded from your dashboard visuals.
If you’re unsure about the anomaly limits set for your sensors, or if you wish to modify them, please refer to our dedicated support article: [Setting Anomaly Range on Sensors](link-to-article). This guide provides comprehensive details on adjusting these limits to better fit your operational needs.
The “Value Range” feature is a powerful tool in ensuring the clarity and accuracy of your dashboard visuals. By seamlessly filtering out anomalies, you can confidently make informed decisions based on the data presented.
