Data tracing
Debugging
Data tracing allows you to sample the specified variables and store the values of the
variables in trace memory without any programming. You can choose between two
continuous trace methods: a triggered trace, where you set a trigger condition and
data is saved before and after that condition is met, or a continuous trace, in which
continuous sampling is performed without any trigger and the results are stored in a
file on your computer. However, you can still display data retrieved on the Sysmac
Studio and save those results to a file even if you use a triggered trace. These same
functions can be used with the Simulator as well.
Setting sampling intervals
The interval to perform sampling on the target data is set. Sampling is performed for the
specified task period, at the specified time, or when a trace sampling instruction is
executed.
Setting triggers
To perform a triggered trace, you set a condition to trigger sampling. A suitable
trigger condition is set to record data before and after an event.
Setting a continuous trace
The method to save the data traced during a continuous trace is set.
Setting variables to sample
The variables to store in trace memory are registered. The sampling intervals can also be
set.
Starting and stopping
tracing
The data trace settings are transferred to the NJ-series CPU unit and the tracing
starts. If you selected Trigger (Single) as the trace type, tracing waits for the trigger
to begin sampling. If you selected Continuous, sampling begins immediately and all
traced data is transferred to the computer as it is gathered and saved to a file.
Displaying trace results
You view the results of the traced data in either a chart or the 3D Motion Monitor.
After sampling begins, sample data is immediately transferred and drawn on the
graph. The trace target variable table shows the maximum, minimum, and average
values for each variable.
You can change the line colors on the graph. *9
You can consecutively read and display continuous trace results from more than one
file. *10
Exporting/ Importing trace
results
Trace results are saved within your project automatically when you save the project
on the Sysmac Studio. If you want to save this data as a separate file, you can export
the data to a CSV file.You can import trace results that you have exported.
Printing trace results
All versions
You can print out data trace settings along with digital and analog charts.
