By licencing the app TS-AFC, every ToolScope can be extended with the ability to imprint an "oscillation" on the override value by activating a special software module. The module is calles "Override Oscillation".

The module simulates the behavior of a machine operator who increases and reduces the override value continuously during the operating process.

With this module the "oscillation" of the machine can be stopped during problematic processes.

Configurable parameters

In the left-hand area you can use the drop-down menus in the "Sensor selection" area to select a trigger and the displayed signal. The "Trigger" channel describes the signal upon whose occurrence the monitoring will be activated (flank change from 0 to 1). The "Displayed signal" channel describes the signal to be monitored. In the right-hand area, use the "Process selection" field to select the process whose settings are to be displayed. Below this, the individual parameters of the respective process are displayed.

The following parameters can be changed manually:


Function name


Oscillation active

The checkmark next to "Oscillation active" specifies whether the "Override oscillation" is activated.

Amplitude [%]

This parameter specifies the maximum number of deviations that the override value can accept in the context of a sinus oscillation.

Length [s]

This parameter specifies the length of an oscillation period in seconds.


Operating the software module

As shown in Figure 53, the software module shows a control signal to be selected by you (in this case: torque) and the output override value, in separate displays.
