The ToolScope can be configured so that the user can see the differences between a current signal curve and a previously learned signal curve through color-coding. This display principle is also called "comparative measurement".

If this option is used, the ToolScope draws signal shares that are:

  • Red, if the signal is higher at the position in question than in the learned signal curve
  • Blue, if the signal is lower at the position in question than in the learned signal curve

Signal shares that are the same in the current and learned signal curves are displayed in green. This display principle means that a sensor signal that tends to be higher is indicated by the higher share of the color red in the display. A signal that tends to be lower is indicated by the higher share of the color blue.

Color-coded display / "comparative measurement"

 

In the example above, the colors have the following meanings:

Color

Meaning

Blue

Signal share that is "missing" when compared with a learned signal

Red

Signal share that is "excessive" when compared with a learned signal

Green

Signal share that is the same in the learned and current signal

Black

Current signal and limits, which trigger an alarm when breached

 

Experienced users can interpret this display more intuitively than the standard linear display. It is preferred by some users.

This function is deactivated by default. Service personnel must activate the function by setting the following checkmark in the monitoring window settings.
