Rubix Platform: Mapping LoRa Points to Rubix Points

This article describes the process of mapping LoRa Points to Rubix Points.  This is done in order to store history logs of the LoRa sensor data.

  3. Rubix Platform: Adding and Editing Wireless Microedge Sensors

Mapping LoRa Points to Rubix Points

Creating a Rubix (Generic) Network

First we will create a Rubix (generic) network, this is where the Rubix Points will be created later in the process.  If a generic network has not been created already, it must be done before proceeding with mapping points to Rubix.

To create a generic network, navigate to Rubix Platform:
  1. Once on Rubix Platform, and using the Sidebar, click on `Driver > Rubix`.
  2. On the `Driver > Rubix` page click the green `CREATE+` button.
  3. On the `Create Network` pop-up that appears, enter a relevant network name. It is recommended to call it something easy to identify for future reference (such as `LoRa`).
  4. Ensure that the check-boxes of `Enable` and `History Enable` is ticked.
  5. Click `Save` in the bottom right hand corner to create this network.

Configuring LoRa Point Mapping

The next step to the point mapping process is to use the Point Mapping service to create Rubix (generic) points and link them to the LoRa points.  To do this, navigate to the `Config > Point Mapping` page on Rubix Platform. This can be found on the Sidebar of Rubix Platform.  If it is non-existent on the Sidebar, see Rubix Platform: Customising the Sidebar to display this option on the Sidebar.
  1. On the `Config > Point Mapping` page, click the tab `LoRa Points <> Rubix | BACnet Points` in the top right.
  2. The first field `LoRa Points` is where all the required LoRa devices/points can be selected.  Use `Select all` to select all devices, or individual devices and their individual points (such as voltage, rssi, temperature, etc).
  3. On the section titled `Generic Points` select the required generic network created previously (from the dropdown labelled `Select Existing Generic Network`.  If no generic network is available, or the desired network isn't present, see the above section Creating a Rubix (Generic) Network.
  4. On the section titled `Generic Points` toggle the switch `Auto create new device(s), point(s) and mapping(s)` to the ON position.  This will automatically generate devices and points in the Rubix (Generic) Network created previously.  The generated points can be seen the moment the switch is toggled on.  Change any required points by selecting the editing pencil next to the desired point.
  5. Click the `ADD` button located on the bottom left of the screen.
  6. Wait until all of the devices have been added to the port mappings.  The time it takes is dependent on how many devices/points are being mapped.
The `Mappings` section will automatically refresh once the devices have been successfully mapped.  If however the devices are not shown, or they are showing delayed data, the refresh button can be pressed to force a refresh of the mapping table.  This refresh button is located directly next to the blue `Sync` button above the `Mappings` table.

Editing or Deleting Existing Points

Existing points can be edited or deleted by using the `Mappings` table on the `LoRa Points <> Rubix | BACnet Points` tab of the `Config > Point Mapping` page.

Editing an Existing Point

To edit an existing point, using the search bar or scrolling on the `Mappings` table, click the edit/pencil icon next to the desired point. This will bring up an `Edit Mapping` pop-up in which details of the mapping can be changed.

Deleting an Existing Point

Single or multiple points can be deleted at once. To delete single or multiple points, select the check-boxes next to the desired points to be deleted. To select all points, make sure that the table is set to display all points, and then click the checkbox on the table titles. use the  After selecting all of the required points that would like to be deleted, click the red `DELETE` button at the top of the `Mappings` table. Confirm the deletion on the pop-up that appears. Additoonally, on individual points, the red trash can icon can be clicked and then confirm the delete on the pop-up.
