The X/Y Plots module is a powerful tool for spatially visualizing an IPI device such as an Measurand SAA or DGSI IPI.
This article will cover the following topics:
1. Select "Data" at the top of the page to navigate to the three different data analytic modules.
2. Select "X/Y Plots" to open the X/Y Plots module.
3. The icon buttons located in section 3 contain features that will help you set up your IPI profile.
Press the gear icon to view your different Profiles and switch between them.
The Sensor Selection Tool will prompt you to choose your Device from a drop down list of available Devices
Use the Lock icon to lock Date/Time between plots
Select this button to add additional plots to the profile. Up to 2 Plots can be added to each page. Each chart can be used to graph different metrics and time frames.
4. Specific settings related to each chart are chosen here. Select how you data will be presented, Polyline (2D), Surface (3D), or Current Shape.
Polyline will display a 2D plot that respresents a single IPI string at different points in time. Each string of connected data points represents an IPI from top to bottom. To gain a sense of time, the plot will display a specified number of intervals throughout time.
Surface (3D) mode will plot the IPI similar to Polyline mode but with a third axis. The third axis will display time and the plot will be smoothed out continuously over the time frame selected.
Current shape will visually display the IPI in it's actual shape in a three dimensional plot. The User will be able to move the IPI around within the plot space to view it from different angles.
The icon will open metric related settings that can be adjusted for the selected chart. These will override any settings that are set in the sensor configuration.
In Polyline, Intervals selects how many instances will be displayed within the time frame
The Chart Context Menu is where you can print and download the current chart
Click the to delete the chart from the profile.
Axis limits can be set in the graph configuration.
You have the option of displaying a custom number of intervals dependent on the amount of data you would like to view. The Intervals can be displayed by showing the Legend.
Note: A maximum of 50 intervals can be displayed at one time.
The Legend helps you identify what point in time you are looking at when in Polyline Mode. This item can be toggled under the settings icon in the top right.
Note: When an interval is clicked it toggles the interval from displaying or not displaying. If an interval is displayed off and saved it will remain hidden in the profile.
