Limits Control

drex_limits_control_screen

1. Open Limit Editor
See Limits Editor menu entry.

2. Limit Selection
Select a predefined limit, or use the edit button next to the list to open the Limits Editor to modify existing limits or create new ones.

3. Timeframe for Average/Maximum Calculation
Change the timeframe that is used for some of the limit calculations.

4. Show Current Value
Enable / Disable the comparison of the current sweep with the selected limit.

5. Show Average Value
Enable / Disable the comparison of the average sweep with the selected limit. The average is computed over the chosen timeframe.

6. Show Maximum Value
Enable / Disable the comparison of the maximum sweep with the selected limit. The maximum is computed over the chosen timeframe.

7. Show Maximum Average Value
Enable / Disable the comparison of the maximum average with the selected limit.

8. Show Absolute Maximum Value
Enable / Disable the comparison of the maximum sweep with the selected limit. This uses the absolute maximum over the whole measurement.

9. Marker Count
Instructs the view how many peaks should be used for the calculations. By default only the highest peak is considered, if you change this to e.g. “3 Markers” the view will compute an average over the three highest peaks and use that for the checks, so a single spike will not necessarily cause the limit to be violated.

10. Auto-Stop Countdown
Instruct the view to stop updating after a certain time, which may be useful for example if you’re running a complicance test that requires measurements over a specific time interval.

11. Limit Scale Maximum Value
Set the right side of the x-axis to the given value.

12. Logarithmic Limit Scale
Convert the x-axis scaling to a log10 base, so the range from 0% to 10% uses the same amount of space as the range of 10% to 100%, making differences in the first half much more visible.

13. Adjust Scaling
Adjust the scaling parameter based on current measurement values.

14. Reset Data
Restart the limit comparison.
