Channelpower View

The Channelpower view is a bargraph plot displaying measurement values within defined channel frequency ranges, calculated from one or more traces. This helps to identify strong or free channels in a given spectrum more easily than the Spectrum View.

10. Channelpower Tooltip
If you move the mouse cursor over a specific bargraph segment a tooltip window will open containing all relevant information about it:

  •  Name of Channel / Provider for the given segment

  •  Label of Trace (Maximum, Average, Current, Minimum)

  •  Channelpower value calculated based on current mode setting

  •  Frequency of displayed value (for “Absolute Peaks” mode), or frequency range of channel
