December 9, 2020 - Using Plots and the Plot Manager

Delta Applications Engineer David McNichol presents some of the useful features of the Plot Manager in RMCTools, especially showing how to use plots to diagnose system problems. David will demonstrate a wide variety of the functions built into the Plot Manager, different troubleshooting indicators like Position Error and Current Program/Step, setting visibility of Status Bits, triggering plot captures, and correlating plots to the Event Log. There will be sections on the plot memory limits, how that impacts plot duration, history settings, and how to use plot data after it has been captured.
