The timeseries Chart window offers a dynamic environment for customized visualization of data.
Every Chart window has a main panel plot area where the primary sensor data is plotted, a time window series selector at the bottom, and a toolbar at the top with controls for visualization and customization.
The following Chart example shows daily tank levels in several different formats for the same sensor feed.
Charts can be accessed and created by either selecting a sensor on the Map, or by going to the Chart tab of the Command Center.
Unlike other features in SCADAWatch, Charts are not saved and stored within the Command Center.
Time Window Control
The time window for data display can be modified in two ways:
The maximum number of data points in a time-window is set in the Settings to maintain plotting efficiency.
The Chart Options panel is a collapsible quick-access panel to common Analytical Functions.
The panel consists of three tabs:
