The screens shown in Figure 2-7 and Figure 2-8 illustrate the location and basic functions of the menu keys during and just after streaming.
  • Page 17 Table 2-2 lists the menu functions available during and just after streaming. Table 2-2 Streaming menu keys, page 1 Menu Key Description This menu key opens the channel selection menu, which allows you to \CHAN select which stream to trace. By extension, you are also choosing which stream to zoom or pan vertically.
  • Page 18 Zoom, Pan and Trace are radio button toggles that work in conjunction with the direction keys ( , and ). Only one function is active at a time, its active status indicated by a small square after the function name. For example, TRACqqq! means the tracer is active and the direction keys will be used to trace the selected stream or jump to another stream.
  • Page 19 Besides navigating and tracing the data set to find data of interest, StreamSmart also lets you compare any two points in a single stream and manually add a data point as a row in your chosen columns in the Statistics application. These functions are found on the second page of the Stream menu, which is only active once streaming has stopped.

    Export menu. Figure 2- 1 2 The Export Menu There are six fields in the Export menu: four for the StreamSmart 410 channels, one for the timestamp associated with each data point, and one that determines what happens after the data is exported. The four channel fields, (CH 1, CH 2, CH 3, and CH 4), as well as the TIME field, all behave the same way.
  • Page 22: Analyze Data

    The Statistics Aplet lets you view your data in a table, plot it as a graph, view summary statistics, and create 2-variable models for bi-variate data. All of this functionality is described in detail in your HP Calculator’s user guide, so it is not repeated here. However, this section contains a brief summary of commonly used functions in the Statistics Aplet.

  • Page 24: Capturing Data From Events

    Capturing Data from Events Although the StreamSmart 410 is capable of collecting data at high sampling rates, as shown in Chapter 2, it is also versatile enough to gather data from experiments of slower frequency—and even distinct events—with ease. You have seen the power of streaming data in real time at rates over 5,000 samples per second with the streaming experiment.

    By default, pressing the %ADD$ menu key will capture the current set of readings from sensors attached to Channels 1 through 4 of the StreamSmart 410. The readings will be auto-numbered, and this number will be stored in Row 1 of column C1 in the Statistics application.
  • Page 27 Like the Export menu discussed in Chapter 2, the Capture Events menu has a field for each of the four StreamSmart 410 channels. Each of these fields is preceded by a checkbox to activate/deactivate the channel, and followed by a choose box to select the Statistics application column for storing the data from that channel.

    In Figure 3-7, C2 is highlighted as the destination for data from the sensor in Channel 2 of the StreamSmart 410. Pressing !sgsy]!!CHK! now will deselect Channel 2 for exporting data. Pressing the CHOOS menu key drops down a list of C1 through C9, and C0, from which you can choose any other column for the data from the sensor in Channel 2.

    Once it has been determined that software calibration for a sensor is the only option, it should be noted that the StreamSmart 410 offers both 1-point and 2-point methods for such calibrations. A 1-point calibration simply changes the offset, while a 2-point calibration changes both offset and slope.

  • Page 35: Filtering Data For Display And Export

    Filtering data for display and export Under most circumstances, each pixel in the display of the data stream represents multiple sensor readings. Depending on the current window, each pixel could represent quite a large data set. For example, in Figure 4-22, each pixel has a width of approximately 0.1 seconds (13s/130pixels=0.1s/pixel).
