6.14 Graphic representation of dimension changes in a program
SYSWIN allows graphic representation of dimensions with time as abscissa. When a monitoring mode is in use, monitor display changes through time, showing changes in values of monitored dimensions. Monitor refreshment is done after a reception of each sample where sample intervals are 0,1-65.5 seconds. Graphics saved in this way can be stored for later analysis as a file, or read in an already saved file.Procedure for starting graphic monitoring is following:- from Editors menu select Time chart monitoring option- from a new tools palette select Trace Configure (pictured as a key).- Fill out message box Configure Time Chart Monitor (see next picture)- From Online menu choose Tracing.With Trace/Configure command adjust parameters for monitoring. Necessary parameters are Trigger or an event where saving will begin, sampling period and bits and/or words whose values we are monitoring. Mapping of a time diagram for dimensions previously specified begins after the last command.Quitting is done with a click on a black square icon, and restarting is performed by clicking on an a red circle icon. Return to the editor with a ladder diagram by clicking on Editors menu and Program editor submenu.
