## Dialog: Function-Block: Statistics |

If you can connect a wire to a Graph FB to plot its data over a complete machine-cycle ...

... then you can connect a wire to a Statistics FB to find statistical data for the complete machine-cycle.

Compare with Element Properties dialog, which displays the data-values at the Master Machine Angle only.

There are two steps you need to do to get Statistics for a Data-Channel on a wire.

STEP 0: Connect a wire to the input of the Statistics FB.

A wire that you connect from the output-connector of a FB to the input-connector of the Statistics FB has three Data-Channels.

For example, the three Data-Channels at the output-connector of a Motion-Dimension FB are the three motion-derivatives of the Motion-Dimension

STEP 1: Select the Data-Channel

STEP 1.Open the Statistics dialog To open the Statistics FB dialog
The Statistics FB dialog is now open. |
|||||||||

Statistics FB dialog Channel / Derivative STEP 2.Click the Derivative drop-down and select the derivative for which you want Statistics
* The Data-Channels in the drop-down box are always: Dis, Vel, and Acc , even if the actual units are different. The actual units: •For a Kinematic-FB are three(3) motion-derivatives •For a Force-Data FB are Total Force/Torque, Force X, Force Y. Ignore the other separators in the dialog. STEP 3.Click to close the Statistics dialog |

STEP 2: Show the Statistics Properties

Statistic Properties dialog STEP 1.Open the Properties box
The Properties box is now open. Read the Statistical Properties for the Data-Channel of the wire that is connected to its input-connector. Mean Ans Max Maximum Minimum RMS Standard Deviation Standard Error Maximum Sum Note: to edit the Number-Format for the Statistics Properties, use: Application-Settings > Number-Format > Data-Output Format > Digits and Precision |
