After you connect a wire to a Y-Axis input-connector, you can open the Graph FB dialog-box [interface] to edit the settings of the graph and plot.
Each wire has up to three different 'data-channels'. You can use the Y-axis Selector to select which data-channel to plot.
The data-channels that are available with each wire are a function of the FB from which you connector the wire to the Graph FB input-connector.
If the wire you connect to the Y–axis input-connector is from a:
|•||Function-Block (Linear-Motion, Gearing, Motion, Motion-Dimension) you can plot:|
|o||Motion-Values being sent along any FB 'along the wire'. |
|o||Motion-Values to trouble-shoot. For example, the motion given to a Rocker or Slider is not as you expect.|
|o||Learn how FBs transform the motion-data.|
|o||Linear position, velocity, acceleration of the Measurement Dimension or Point.|
|o||Angular position, velocity, acceleration of the Measurement Dimension.|
You can plot three Pressure Angles – See
|o||Cam Radius-of-Curvature. |
You can plot Radii-of-Curvature for Cam 1 and Cam 2.
After you link a Force-Data FB to a:
|o||Pin-Joint with a Motor, you can plot Motor Drive Torque.|
|o||Slide-Joint with a Motor, you can plot Motor Drive Linear Force|
|o||Joint without a Motor, plot |
|▪||Total Force [ FT = √(FX2 + FY2), or|
|▪||Force along the X-coordinate of a Point: FX|
|▪||Force along the Y-coordinate of a Point: FY|
|o||2D-Cam: you can plot the Cam Contact Force|
|o||Spring FB: you can plot the Total Force, the X Force and the Y Force acting on the Point.|
To show Position, Velocity and Acceleration available from one connector of a FB that is listed above, then drag a wire from the same output-connector of the FB to different input-connectors on the Graph FB.
