How to Creat New, Custom Channels, From Live Data

The DracalView software allows one to generate new channels from the channels already available from the Dracal Technologies measuring instruments.

The expression to designate a given channel is, between square brackets, the unique ID of the channel, as shown in the measuring instrument inset, for instance [E21170:00].

Math channels can be used as any other channel in DracalView. This means it is possible to add them to BigView or GraphView, and to customize their aliases and units. Math channels can also be logged.

Aside from extracting the non-calibrated data of a calibrated channel, math channels allow to scale together different measurements, making it easy to visually ascertain their fluctuations.

In fact, the Help button shows all possible formulas for math channels.
