Integrated charting tool enables simple graphical display of signal curves
The acquisition and analysis of data on machines is becoming more important. Process data needs to be clearly and graphically displayed and analysed across the entire lifecycle of a machine in the correct chronological order. Using TwinCAT 3 Scope, it is possible to display curves with a resolution up to the microsecond range
The software oscilloscope is fully integrated into the TwinCAT control architecture and enables the simple graphical display of signal curves. Its multi-core capability also makes it suitable for large recordings with several hundred variables.
Seamless integration into Microsoft Visual Studio, and therefore into the TwinCAT engineering environment, makes the solution user-friendly and gives machine developers a a charting tool which helps to simplify the engineering process during the development phase as well as during process monitoring.
In combination with the new TwinCAT Analytics and TwinCAT IoT software modules, acquired process data can be analysed either locally or via the Cloud. Users can choose between signal representation in XT and XY plots or using new bar charts within TwinCAT Scope.>
