I am trying to take the data from a widget on my dashboard and use it in other calculations. I am currently tracking press brake cycles on a few Bystronic press brakes in our shop. I send Ubidots a signal when a cycle is completed, and I output the average cycles per hour to a Bar chart widget.
I want to be able to use the hourly averages that the widget calculates and use it for another calculation. I plan to take the average cycles/hour and convert it to seconds/cycle, which is a metric our shop uses to gauge our production efficiency. Any thoughts? Not sure if I have to create a new variable or if there’s a way to simply take the widget data and use it elsewhere.
