The Multi-Graph page allows data from several different Transmitters to be graphed together simultaneously.
- Multi-graph current and Historic Data on the same graph
- Multi-graph multiple periods and tasks
- Multi-Graph current and removed Transmitters on the same graph
- Create unique Filters that can be saved and used at a later date
- Edit/Delete Filters
Note: The trace colours are fixed by the layout of the graph. If the chosen channels have too similar colours, it may be possible to add or remove Transmitters so that colours are more evenly distributed….
The Transmitter Detail View is spit into the following sections:
- Multi-Graph First Time Use
- Multi-Graph Options
- Create New List
- Save My First Filter
- Edit Existing Filter
- Delete an Existing Filter
- Printing Multi-Graph
- Graph Data
Multi-Graph First Time Use
Multi-Graph is accessed by selecting the Multi-Graph Tab from any other Tab.
The first time that Multi-Graph is selected there will be no Multi-Graph to view. However there will be a list of Transmitters as based on your current filter. The list of Tasks and Periods will be the current Task and Period for the Transmitters for today.
The Multi-Graph is as shown below.
