If you can connect a wire to a Graph FB to plot its data...

  ...then you can connect a wire to a Statistics FB to find the Statistical information for the same data.

The Statistics FB calculates various Statistical values of the data at its input-connector over one machine-cycle.


Compare with Element Properties, which are motion-values at the 'instant' of the Master Machine Angle.
