TRIGGERED PLOTS for the MARK V

OVERVIEW:

The Triggered Plot program on the MK V <I> processor shows the user plots of up to 2 data points versus
time. The maximum time for plotting is 2 minutes. These plots are unit specific. Their data file is located in
the F:\UNITn> directory. Up to 40 plot displays can be made for each unit.

The data points are collected at a sample rate of 8 times per second for an elapsed time of 1 to 120 seconds.
Two conditions are needed to trigger the plot, (1) the display must be accessed and (2) the selected logic
signal must be in its desired state. There are some options available on the triggered plot display. The user
may specify two pushbuttons for sending commands to the unit, up to 8 status points can be displayed and
two linear reference lines can be shown on the plot. The status points are updated on the screen once per
second.

CREATING THE DISPLAY(S):

The definition for each triggered data plot display is defined in a configuration data file. The file name is:
F:\UNITn\TPLOT.DAT. There is only one data file per unit. Each new plot is started by a PLOT line
starting in the first column. The other lines for the plot must be indented by one or more spaces.

BASIC PLOT (Active lines are shown in Bold Type.)

F:\UNITn>EDIT TPLOT.DAT:

;Define the PLOT name: PLOT “Text”


PLOT “Control Test #1”
;Define the TITLE on the plot: TITLE “Text”
TITLE “Speed and Watts”
;Define the logic name and its state that will act as a TRIGGER:
; TRIGGER Signal Name Value
TRIGGER L1X 1
;Define where the units will be shown, the signal names and the range (in counts)
; nAXIS_PT Signal Name Min Value Max Value (Where n is L or R)
LAXIS_PT TN_RPM 0 30000
RAXIS_PT DW_DPY 0 20000
;Define the time to collect data for in seconds (1 to 120 seconds):
; ELAPSED_TIME n (Where n is a whole number from 1 to 120)
ELAPSED_TIME 60
;End of Basic File.

To have more than one plot per unit.


At the end of a BASIC PLOT and its options, start another plot by adding additional lines to the file
beginning with PLOT, TITLE, ......, ELAPSED_TIME and that plot’s options.

; Define the first plot


PLOT “Control Test #1”
TITLE “Speed and Watts”
TRIGGER L1X 1
LAXIS_PT TN_RPM 0 30000
RAXIS_PT DW_DPY 0 20000
ELAPSED_TIME 60
; Options for first plot belong here
; Define the second plot
PLOT “Control Test #2”
TITLE “Fuel Transfer”
TRIGGER L83MIXT 1
LAXIS_PT FSR1 0 30000
RAXIS_PT FSR2 0 30000
ELAPSED_TIME 120
; Options for second plot belong here

OPTIONS (Examples are shown in Bold Type.)

1- Add up to two pushbuttons to send commands to the unit.


At the end of the BASIC PLOT (before you begin a new one) add the pushbuttons:

BUTTON_n (?,!,#) Signal Name =Value “Text” “Text” (Where n is 1 or 2)


BUTTON_1 ? L1START_CPB = 4 “ START” “ PB“
BUTTON_2 ? L1STOP_CPB = 4 “ STOP” “ PB “

2- Add up to 8 signal names that you want to watch the status of to the display.
At the end of the BASIC PLOT (before you begin a new one) add the signals to be displayed:

STATUS n Signal Name (Where n is a whole number from 1 to 8)


STATUS 1 TN_RPM
STATUS 2 DW_DPY
STATUS 3 L1X
STATUS 4 T1:TNH
STATUS 5 T2:DWATT ;you can look at signal names from different units
STATUS 6 L52GX
STATUS 7 FSR1
STATUS 8 FSR2

3- Add reference lines to compare actual data with. This will not affect actual data.
At the end of the BASIC PLOT (before you begin a new one) add the reference lines:

LINE Signal Name Color x-start y-start x-end y-end


LINE TN_RPM RD 10 500 40 15000
LINE DW_DPY BL 10 500 40 15000
(NOTE: x values are in engineering units and y values are in counts.)

ACCESSING THE DISPLAYS:

To include the Trigger Data Plot program on the main menu, add the following line to MENU.DAT file in
F:\RUNTIME:

“ TRIGGERED DATA PLOT” “g:\exec\tplot.exe”

When this is selected from the main menu, a display select menu will appear for the plots. If the trigger
condition is met, plotting will begin when you access the plot. If the plot is accessed with the trigger
condition not met, no data will be displayed on the plot until the trigger’s condition is met.

A selection can also be added to the MAIN MENU that allows the user to immediately go to a specified
plot, bypassing the Triggered Plot Menu. This is done in the F:\RUNTIME\MENU.DAT file by specifying
the name of the plot. For example:

“ TRIGGERED DATA PLOT” “g:\exec\tplot.exe” “Control Test #1”

USING THE TRIGGERED PLOT DISPLAY

Any push-buttons on the display(s) are active at all times, but they do not directly start or stop the plotting.
Once the plotting begins, it will continue unitl the elapsed time has passed. Plotting may be stopped at any
time be exiting to the TRIGGERED PLOT MENU or the MAIN DISPLAY or by a normal EXIT to the
MAIN MENU.

Exiting to the ALARM DISPLAY will not stop the plot, but it wll cause gaps in the plot graph. PLOT
DATA IS NOT COLLECTED WHILE IN THE ALARM DISPLAY.

The SAVE REPORT and PRINT REPORT targets become active only after all data for the plot is collected
and the plotting has completed.
