Getting started [3/5] - Build your own tags

Sometimes, the data you are looking for is not available as such and you would like to create your own tags based on existing ones, using a formula (e.g., the sum of flows into a reactor) or an aggregation of an existing tag (e.g., the average temperature of the last 8 hours). No worries, we have you covered.

In the following video, we introduce the tag builder and teach you how to create formula and aggregation tags. Watch the video and continue on this page to learn more...

Doing more with tags

Utilizing time shits, aggregation options, import

When creating a new formula tag you have the option to define a time shift for each tag in the formula. This enables you to incorporate process delays into your calculation or account for dynamic processes. Learn more

The aggregation functionality  enables you to create smoothed tags, derivatives, etc. by calculating aggregated values over a specified time window. There are six operators (ex: minimum, average, maximum, etc) to choose from. Learn more

In addition to the tags automatically available from a connected data source, such as a historian, TrendMiner offers the possibility to import tags from a CSV file. Learn more
