The sub-point Service > Settings > Base > Additional monitoring windows allows you to configure the number of additional monitoring windows.

Names can be assigned to the additional windows, and the number of channels within the windows can be set.

Additional monitoring windows are added as additional tab pages in the service area.


Function name


Number of additional monitoring windows

Number of windows to be set up in addition to the main view

Name of monitoring window X

Name of the tab page showing monitoring window X in the service area. The monitoring channel files are saved under this name in the log directory.

Number of channels in the monitoring window X

Number of monitoring channels displayed in the tab page for monitoring window X

After the ToolScope has been restarted, the monitoring channels configured above are available in the service area.


The size and layout of the windows for the individual monitoring channels can be configured under the "Screen layout" option.

Configure monitoring tabs in the main view

It is also possible to configure the additional monitoring windows to appear in the main window instead of the service section. This is especially useful for machines with many NC channels like round table machines. To do so, simply check the "Display as addditional tab in the main window" checkbox for the desired window.





Configuration the name of the Main Window


Once there is a second tab in the main window, the main view will also be on a tab. This tab will have the name "main window" on standard. 

Remark: you can configure the name of the first view with an internal setting under Service > Settings > Other. Select the below variable and enter your desired name.
