Setting up Charts

Acquire must be in Config mode to perform these steps.

Acquire can plot up to six data points on a time based line chart. Whereas the Snapshot on the P&ID only shows data for the last 10 minutes, the charts on the data screens can show data for longer time periods.

The chart is only available on the ’2 Data Columns with Chart’ screen type.
