The above picture explains how the Advanced idling is implemented.
The first column shows 11 different scenarios based on:
- Ignition status
- External power status (EP)
- Input signal status (IS)
- RPM status (RPM)
When a signal is active according to the settings in the BackOffice it is shown as a colored bar above
Scenario 1 (current system)
The idling period will follow the ignition status and none of the extra sensors are taken into account. Idling is ended when movement is detected.
Scenarios 2,3,4 (single sensor)
When a single sensor (EP, IS, RPM) is specified the resulting idling period follows the activity of that sensor. When that sensor is not active no idling will be recorded.
EP, IS and RPM can be combined with either an OR condition or an AND condition and the result is then combined with the Ignition signal with an AND condition.
The effect of adding more sensors to the idling detection is that it takes more ‘effort’ to get into an idling state. That can be seen by the brown bars that are shorter (less idling) than the original idling period.
Scenarios 5,6,7 (sensors combined with an AND function)
When sensors are combined with AND the idling period will follow the shortest overlap of all sensors involved.
Scenarios 8,9,10,11 (sensors combined with an AND function)
When the sensors are combined with OR the idling period will follow the longest overlap of any sensors, but is still shorter than the idling period of scenario 1
Setting the Advanced idling parameters
The Advanced idling parameters are implemented in the BackOffice under “Configure installation details” in the Device details menu.
