|FlowRate data type|
The data type FlowRate represents a rate of flow measurement.
The TDE data types for quantifiable data (numeric values with units of measure) are all stored as double and are handled similarly for template scripting.
Since every quantifiable data type is stored as double, be sure to account for that when you test equivalency (for example, 1 may actually be stored as 0.999999). Either round off the values being compared, or use ranges for the comparison.
LitersPerHour or lph — default
GallonsPerHour or gph
Data from TDE defaults to the first unit listed for each data type. In the [Output] section, you can convert these values to the units you need:
[Output] FuelConsumptionRate(gph) = input.FuelRate # converts lph to gph
The effective range of this data type is: 0 to 1,000,000 lph
You can access the valid units of measure as fields:
