Parent topic: Data Viewer Page

The Data Viewer page is a customizable environment with components that provide access to data and a workspace that contains charts, or viewers. You can add and remove different types of viewers, load historical or live data, and use various tools to examine features of interest in more detail.

The following image shows an example of the Data Viewer page.

Operating Modes

The Data Viewer page has two operating modes designed for viewing specific types of data:

  • Periodic Data—Data trends over a customizable time range.
  • Stream Data—Live or historical data acquired continuously during certain operating states of equipment, such as a run-up or coast-down. The time range for which you can access data is restricted to the duration of the operating state.

To provide a starting point for your analysis tasks, both modes have a default layout of viewers and a customized toolbar for working in that mode.

Switching between Periodic and Stream Data Modes

If you load stream data or subscribe to a stream, the Data Viewer page automatically switches to Stream Data mode.

When the Data Viewer page is in Stream Data mode, you can switch to Periodic Data mode by clicking the Switch to periodic view button on the Data Viewer page toolbar.
