AWS IoT SiteWise now supports definition of asset measurement units at the asset level, enabling customers to use a single asset model for machines reporting measurements in different units.

In the past, customers could only define units for asset measurements at the asset model level. This meant that they had to create different asset models in order to create assets for machines that used different units (e.g., Celsius vs Fahrenheit). Now, if a customer has two machines of the same model, for example, one located in the United States using the imperial system and the other in Italy using the metric system, they can use the same asset model measurement to report temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius respectively.

For more information on how to create assets and asset models, see creating asset and creating asset models in our User Guide.
