On this page, you will learn how to correctly set up tracking channels to use them in your analyses.

Organization of operational data

To use a tracking channel in analyses, the response and tracking channels must be in the same operational dataset. Make sure to set up the measurement, or export accordingly in the software you use to measure the operational data (e.g., PAK, TestLab, Artemis, …).

If the operational data and the tracking channel have different sampling rates, they must be in the same Multiple Time Series dataset in SOURCE.

Managing channels

To correctly set up the tracking channel, you need to:

  1. Add it to the Master Channels.
  2. Set its type to Tracking.

Setting analysis inputs

After creating the analysis, you need to set the correct inputs.

  • Operational data: the operational dataset containing the response and tracking channels.
  • Tracking channel: the correct channel.

In case of Multiple Time Series datasets, you must select the Multiple Time Series itself and not the single operational Time Series.

Analysis settings

After adding the inputs, you need to set the Time Blocks settings according to your needs and include the Time domain conversion.

You can find extensive explanations about the settings here.

Visualizing Campbell diagrams

After computing the analysis and plotting the time data results as waterfall diagrams, you can change the time axis to the tracking channel.

To visualize the Campbell diagram, complete the next steps:

  1. Right-click on the Y-axis.
  2. Select Axis Type.
  3. Select the tracking channel.
