Display the same waveform on the three different types of chart update mode.
There are 3 update modes when it comes to XY/ Waveform Charts. What do these update modes mean and how do they differ? This example demonstrates the differences between these chart update mode types:
- Strip Chart: This mode has a scrolling display that is similar to a paper tape strip chart recorder. As it receives each new value, it plots the value at the right margin, and shifts old values to the left.
- Scope Chart: This mode has a retracing display similar to an oscilloscope. As it receives each new value, it plots the value to the right of the last value. When the plot reaches the right border of the plotting area, it erases the plot and begins plotting again from the left border.
- Sweep Chart: This mode acts much like the scope chart, but the plot is not erased when the plot hits the right border. Instead, a moving vertical line marks the beginning of new data and moves across the display from left to right as it adds new data.
