Factory Sensor - Units Problem




To calculate an energy ratio (for DataCenter), I need something like that :

Total Energy / ( Energy Source 1 + Energy Source 2) Every sources use kWh unit

  1. 1:PUE_t0

Naturally I don't need the results in kWh, it's a ratio.

How to remove the kWh in the result ?

You can specify a unit for the channel, by adding [unit] next to the channel name.
For example: #1:PUE_t0 [#]

More information about this can be found in the sensor manual.
