'Calculate my kW' was enabled on one or more loggers during SYNC process. What does this mean?

During the audit synchronisation process, SCADAR uses the logged data to establish various items of additional data such as 'kW'.  kW is calculated by taking the logged 'Volts', 'Current' & derived 'Power factor' to calculate the resulting 'kW'.  If SCADAR is unable to establish the kW from logged data, (e.g. the voltage data is missing or power factor is corrupt due to poor location of logger sensors) then SCADAR will default that logger's kW to 'Calculate my kW'.  When this happens, you will see the following message after the SYNC process completes (Click the individual logger icons to review individual logger status) ...

The effect of this action is to revert relational kW calculations to be derived from compressor table data rather than actual logged data!
