  • We will now place a realtime trend chart on a new panel Select the Trend object icon from the toolbar or right-click and select from drop down menu
  • Rename the panel and we will need to create a button to navigate to and from it.
  • Assign variables to the pens on the Trend object
  • Configure the axis settings
  • Start your logic to give us some data to display
  • We can now see the data, this is realtime data but there is no facility for historical analysis or printing the chart data So we need to create a chart that will give us this data and capability. We do this with the highly compacted data base tool TrendX
  • Firstly create two new logging groups
  • In the property inspector window assign their logging strategy
  • As we did with alarms we will now configure our points by undocking the variables window to access large numbers of variables at one time for speed
  • select the columns properties tab
  • To add the columns with which we are concerned , select the columns list
  • Right click on the columns window and use the hide columns tab to get rid of unnecessary columns
  • Select the start point and drag across all the visible points you want to configure here we enable logging Type T or F for True or False
  • Now logging is enabled we can assign logging groups for our points
  • If you type any key, a drop down menu will appear with the logging groups that are available from which to select
  • Change as many as you want
  • To enable TrendX to assimilate this data we must download the configuration
  • Start TrendX
  • We must now add a database to TrendX
  • Machine Edition has now created a database log based on our configuration information this is held in the project folder.
  • Open your folder mine is called Reuse
  • Open the database log file
  • Now we can see all of the points that we configured for logging that are available to trend
  • There are a variety of pre-configured modes that can be availed of, or we can create custom charts
  • Custom modes are historical and are shown with a red marker
  • Realtime charts are shown with a green indicator. These charts can be zoomed in to or our from for custom viewing
