Import Data: Z-Raw-Data

About the Z-Raw-Data

This Z-Raw-Data Motion-Law is used under two circumstances:

To 'host' motion-values that you import.

- or -

To 'host' the motion-values when you open a Camlinks .mec file with an old motion - before Motion4. Contact PSMotion to find out more.

Unlike the Position-List Motion-Law that scales the values, the Z-Raw-Data Motion-Law does not scale the values. They are displayed exactly as they are in the table.

You can, however, offset the whole data along the Y–axis by the same amount.

How to use the Z-Raw-Data Segment

To use the Z-Raw-Data segment:

1.Select a Motion tab
2.Change a segment to Z-Raw-Data in the Motion-Law Selector.

There is only one segment in the image below. Also, you can more segments that are 'Z-Raw Data', mixed in with other Motion-Laws.

However, one segment is the most common.

3.Click the Z-Raw-Data Segment in the graph area
4.Open the Data-Transfer Table. Select the top, left cell.
5.Cut & Paste data to the Data-Transfer Table from, a Graph FB Plot, NotePad® or Excel®, or open a .txt or .asc file. The data must be as columns of data.

In the Data-Transfer Table:

6.Click the first (top-left cell) and SHIFT+ Click the last (bottom-right cell) 'Y–axis' cells that you want to Put to the Z-Raw-Data Motion-Law. Do not select X–axis values.
7.Use the 'Put List' tool - using this icon, DTPuPosList - in the toolbar at the top of the Data-Transfer dialog-box.

Raw Data - Import Dat to Segment


NEED to Check Below!!! Please Experiment.

When you Put a list of data to a Z-Raw-Data Segment, MotionDesigner will do the following:

Do nothing if you post less than 5 points. But MotionDesigner will tell you to put more points in your list.
Squeeze the data in to the segment width.
Create points to coincide with the points in the segment.
Numerically Differentiate the data to create new Position Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk values.
You can use the Get Motion Data button or the Get Segment Data button to extract the new Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk values,
You can use the Get List Data button to get the original data.
