Set activity thresholds and standstill thresholds

Created by Support smartblick, Modified on Fri, 24 Jun 2022 at 06:09 PM by Support smartblick


If you have smartboxes connected to your machines, smartblickautomatically detects the activity and idle times based on two values.

With the settings described here you can adapt these values to your machines.

Activity threshold = 10s =  any spindle activity over 10s is registered as an operation in the dashboard

Standstill threshold = 10s =  any inactivity over 10s will be registered as a standstill in the dashboard 


Example Adjustment Activity Threshold

A spindle on your machine periodically performs a 15 second positioning operation during a downtime.

If you now increase the activity thresholdto 20s, the process marker for standstill will not be interrupted

Example Adjustment of standstill threshold

Your machine has a large magazine and a tool change takes c.a. 30 seconds. However, you do not want to evaluate this time as inactivity.

If you now increase the standstill thresholdto 35 seconds, the process marking for activity will not be interrupted by a standstill.


1. Go to your machine page and open the machine configuration.

2. In the Smartbox Assignmentarea, select the Advancedmenu item.

3. Enter the values that are appropriate for you and click Save.

The smartboxreconfigures itself and after a short time (5 - 10 minutes) records the activity and downtime times with the selected parameters.
