Cost centers export

Back to the overview

With the automatic export, per Project an individual regular export of the Cost centers can be defined. The configuration is divided in two steps:

  1. Global set up of the export targets (directories / receiver)
  2. Set up of the measured values, which are to export.

Global set up: configuration file

On the visual energy 4 webserver, in the directory [Programs]\KBR\ve4 Application Services\Config\ is the file cc_export_default.xml. With this file, can be determined the export fields of CSV, the separator, as well as the output directory or receiver:

<FIELDSETS default="1">

This section contains the field definition. There can be created multiple definitions. Each definition owns a clear ID. If nothing is specified by the respective Meteringpoint, so the ID who was set by FILEDSETS default= will be used.

<FIELDSET id="1" seperator=";"..

Section for the first field definition with following properties:

  • id, clear number ID
  • culture, either “de-De” or “en-US”, defines the output language and number format
  • seperator, for example “;” or “,”
<FIELD id="UtcTime" format="yyyy-MM-ddTHH-mm" />

Details of the field to be exported. Possible fields area:

  • UtcStartTime, format: y M d H m
  • LocalStartTime, format: y M d H m
  • UtcEndTime, format: y M d H m
    LocalEndTime, format: y M d H m
  • Value, format: N3
  • Status
  • Location, format: ID, Name
  • ObisCode, format: Shortname, Code

  • recipient-id=”1″, reference to the <RECIEPIENT> defined receiver.

Global set up: Export date

As a registered user in the User role System administrator SA, the Automation can be set up for the check of cyclical export orders. With the task “measuring data export”, the interval (1:00:00 = daily) as well as the date can be defined.
