Rating file – adjust rating thresholds individually
The rating file allows a setting of the rating thresholds of the CANtouch. You use this file to determine which CANtouch measured values output a warning or an error. It can be stored separately for each project, so that adaptation to different conditions in the systems is possible.
The name of the file is cantouch.property.rating.xml. It can be edited with any text editor. (e.g. Notepad++)The storage location is the main directory of the respective project. CANtouch:\Projects\MyProject. If there is no correspondingly named file in the project, predefined default values are used in the firmware. Incorrect entries in the file are ignored and replaced by default values predefined in the firmware. Voltages are given in millivolts (1000mV = 1V). Resistance values are given in milliohms (1000mOhm = 1Ohm). Upper” stands for an upper limit, “Lower” for the lower limit. “Warning” is the threshold above which a yellow smiley is displayed. From the threshold “Fault” the red smiley is displayed.
Now let’s look at the contents of the standard file (Screenshot Notepad++):
In line 05 the settings begin with the rating for the busload. Line 06 contains the number of error frames per second. The values for the edges in lines 18 and 19 represent 64ths of the bit time.
Some customers do not want a yellow smiley rating. In this case, the thresholds for warning and fault can be set to the same value. This leads to the immediate display of a red smiley from the specified limit.
The display of the adjusted thresholds is possible via the smileys. A complete overview can be obtained for each project via >Settings, section Project >Rating
