Z-Raw-Data (Import Data)
Z-Raw-Data is a List Segment-Type.
The Z-Raw-Data is a segment that uses your data as motion-values.
We use the Data-Transfer Table to transfer your data to the Z-Raw-Segment.
See Also: Acceleration-List, Position-List, Tools: Data-Transfer,
To plot your data with the Z-Raw-Data segment:
STEP 1.Import your data to the Data-Transfer Table
1.Use the Motion-Law Selector to select Z-RAW-DATA
2.Open the Data-Transfer Table
3.Click a cell in the first row of the Data-Transfer Table to make it the active cell.
To put the data to the Position-List segment into the Data-Transfer Table.
a.Copy data to and Paste data from your Windows® clipboard into the Data-Transfer Table.
b.Open a CSV, TXT or DAT (Camlinks based) file.
c.Get Motion-Values from a different motion or segment
Note: In your original data, include as many decimal points as possible.
The data is now in the Data-Transfer Table
STEP 2.Move your data to the Z-Raw-Data segment from the Data-Transfer Table
To move all of the data:
1.Click the Pos header in the Data-Transfer Table to select the column of data
2.Click Put List Data in the Data-Transfer Table toolbar.
To move a sub-section of the data:
1.Click the first data point you want in move to the Z-Raw-Data
2.SHIFT + Click the last data point you want to paste into the Z-Raw-Data.
3.Click Put List Data in the Data-Transfer Table toolbar.
Note : Put List Data icons show only when the segment is a List Segment-Type
Data-Transfer Table toolbar
The data is a plot in the Z-Raw Data segment in the motion graph.
Result: MotionDesigner does the following:
•Do nothing if you try to post less than 5 data-points. MotionDesigner will tell you to post more data-points.
•Transforms the data to give points that coincide with the points in the segment.
•Numerically differentiate the data to create Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk values.
In the Data-Transfer Table:
•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 move the original data back to the table.
