Power is used to raise any input series to a specified exponent.


Parameter

Description

Input Data*

Defines the time series data fed into the function. This can be a sensor ID or another function.

Power

This is the exponent used on the input data.
For example, 2 will give in input data squared, while 0.5 will give the square root of the data.

*Input data is optional in most cases. If Info360 detects that the first input is time series data, it will be applied to the function. Otherwise, the current active sensor's data will be used, which is often the case in Reference Charts.

Example Usage as an Expression:

Power(2) - Raises the current data stream to the second power (squared).

Power(Power(2),0.5) =Abs() - Performs the square root on the squared values, which is the equivalent of outputting the absolute value.

Examples Reference Chart:

The following example shows a measured signal compared to its SQRT (), raised to the Power 2, and raised to the Power 3.

Notice that SQRT becomes undefined when the input is negative since Info360 does not handle non-real numbers.

When the input is 1, all values are equal, when negative, the Power 2 results are positive and Power 3 are negative.
