Processing markers

DewesoftX software offers a variaty of processing markers that are useful for analyzing vector or matrix data presented on the 2D or 3D graphs.

Available Markers

Here is the list with additional information with all possible markers that you can add on 2D or 3D graph.

NOTE: Not all markers are available for all types of data.

Adding a Marker to Widget

Processing markers can currently be added to your data in two different ways

  1. Through Marker icons (currently only available for 2D graphs) - once you select the desired marker, you can add as many of this type to your widget, until you select a different interaction. The added marker will always be in Current value mode.

  1. By right-click on the widget and selecting Add Marker. In this way the Marker settings will pop-out and you can further customize the wanted marker.

NOTE: You can not add a marker on a widget, where you are presenting another marker output that is set in Current value mode. If you try to add a marker you will get the following warning.

Adding a marker on a Zoomed-in area on 2D graph

When you add a marker on alaready zoomed-in area on the 2D graph, the marker value will be calculated from this exact area. You will noticed that in the settings the custom search area will be automatically enabled. Once you unzoom the 2D graph area to its full size and you want to calcluate marker value to the full size, you need to adjust the marker settings and disable the custom search area.

Marker Settings

When you add marker to the widget, by right-clicking on the data, marker settings will be opened. There are a lot of generic settings that apply to all available markers

  1. Marker Mode - The Marker mode can be seen in the marker table.

    • Cuernt value - shows only the current marker value and can be interacted while storing, but can not be used as input for other modules
    • Full History - marker values are stored and an additional output channels are created that can be used as input in other modules
  2. Input channel - option to select the channel to which you want to pin the marker you are adding. This is mostly usefull when multiple channels are assigned to the same widget.

  3. Marker scaling - the marker value will be calculated accoring to selected scaling. When marker is placed on a widtet it’s label value and value in marker table will take into account the scaling selected on a widget. The channel value - the one you can place on digital meter or use for further calculation will always took into account the scaling option selected in the marker settings.

  1. Complex presentation - select to which complex presentation of data you will add the marker. The marker will only appear on the widget, when the complex presentation of data and marer are the same.

  2. Allow marker placement between data - when enabled the marker will always align with the actual data point. When disabled the marker can be placed between two data points.

  3. Peak search

    • Limit the range of the peak. This mean that two peaks can not be found in the limited range
    • interpolate peak between data points. When peak interpolation is enabled, the peak can be outside of the graph lines.
  4. Marker color - select the wanted marker colour

  5. Line Thicnekss - select the thicnkes of the marker line that is presented on the widget

Marker Module

In setup under math modules you can add Marker module, where you have an overview off all added markers in setup. You can also access the setup of the markers.

All the classic edit columns are available for marker, where you can set the marker to online/offline, stored/not stored, …

Marker mode (Current value or Full history can be assesed easily and changed for one marker at the time or all selected markers at the same time

Marker visibility

The markers are per default linked to the channel on which we add them - meaning that per default we show markers on every graph where this channel is presented.

But you can also unasinge markers from widgets (2D or 3D widget) which allows you to fully customize how you want display them. By displaying different marker parameters on different widgets you can make your reports clearer and therefore more effective.
