Result Control

drex_result_control_screen
The Results control serves multiple purposes:

  •  listing of the current peak value (with frequency)
  •  changing the measurement unit used for display
  •  provide an overview of current calibration settings
  • evaluate readings from connected probes

1. Current Peak Result
Reports the peak value of the current sweep (or the maximum or average trace, see below). If the Show all Measure Units option is checked it is replaced with a table where the peak value is converted to all available measurement units (some units may not be available if they’re not valid for the current device settings).

2. Current Peak Frequency
Lists the frequency where the current peak was found.

3. Calibration Parameter Overview
Summarizes the effects of the current calibration settings at the peak frequency. The reported values may change when peaks are found at different frequencies.

4. Result Unit Settings
Maybe the most important function of the Results control is the ability to change the measurement unit used for display. This does not only affect the Results control itself but also all views attached to the current device. As different measurement units have vastly different scales, in most cases a unit change will automatically adjust the Reference level and Dynamic range of affected views, trying to ensure that a view isn’t suddenly empty.

5. Trace Selection
Allows you to change which peak value should be displayed by the control. By default the current peak is used, but it can also display the peak of the maximum or average traces to retain the absolute or average peak. If you need a visual representation of the peak as well please read the Markers section

6. Show all Measure Units
If checked the Current Peak Result is replaced with a table where the peak value is converted to all available measurement units (some units may not be available if they’re not valid for the current device settings).
