Math Channels on Time Data

Filter and Combine Traces

The Math feature plots a user-defined math equation on a time or frequency-domain graph. It allows the user to implement custom math operations not defined by the current graph types.

Math channels allow for per-channel filtering, channel combining to create new channels in units of angle, or creating synthesized waveforms.

Math traces allow for templated spectrum math analysis: create an envelope or average PSDs, create trace ratios for comparison, analyze average control on recordings, or compare data to pasted tolerance lines.

40 Uses for Math Traces






Custom Modal Setup

new modal project setup

The Modal Testing software now includes an advanced project type. The user can select different response locations/directions for each reference, essentially combining the roving hammer and roving accelerometer methods in one project.

Graph Pages/Docking Layout

Graph layout option in ObserVIEW 2023.1

The software now organizes graphs as tabs in the main graph layout for better graph visibility and organization. The user can make isolated changes to graphs in different tabs or monitors, and the software saves the main graph layout.

File Import Dialog

ObserVIEW 2023.1 includes a new import user interface for .txt, .csv, and other text-based files. With this interface, the user can define the waveform’s sample rate, exclude channels from the analysis, display a preview graph, and more.

GPS Timestamp Compensation

In ObserVIEW 2023.1 and newer, the user can resample and align saved data to GPS atomic time to compensate for system clock drift and make overlaying data between acquisition devices extremely precise.


Overlay Recordings Using GPS Timestamp

With the addition of GPS timestamp capabilities, the user can overlay recordings with more exact data, helping them identify similarities and relationships between waveforms.

Additional Features

  • Insert cursors on spectrograms
  • Insert/edit annotation text to graphs
  • Add RMS cursor to pasted traces
  • Time-history statistical traces to identify trends, evaluate stationary, kurtosis, max accel, disp.
  • Plot GPS data over time
  • Graph all traces on the same y-axis, regardless of unit
  • Analyze tachometer channels in Live Analyzer

Live Output Generator

Run an open-loop output of sine, square, triangle, linear chirp, exponential chirp, or white noise. A live output generator is helpful for low-level modal stimulation and demonstration purposes. The user can also verify hardware functionality by closing the loop to an input channel on the front panel.

User-defined Units

If a user requires a measurement unit that is not pre-set in the software, they can add it to the Display Units list. The software includes helpful scaling functions to define a new unit, and users can edit/add/delete a user-defined unit at any time.
