Issue Details

I have a sensor that occasionally reports inaccurate data or my sensors occasionally go bad. How can I manually or automatically delete bad data in NI InsightCM?


  • The Data Validation tab allows you to set rules for determining if a sensor is returning valid data. These rules apply to all sensors of the same type, such as accelerometers. After setting rules for a sensor type, data validation errors will appear on the Notifications page and on the Dashboard. You can then delete the bad data manually.
  • On the Asset Configuration page, you can change the Data Set Collection Conditions to include a Gate. By adding a Gate you can prevent an Asset from reporting data samples if a condition is met. This will affect all sensors tied to a given Asset.
