Can time data be added to the data calculator in Navigator? Want to make a histogram and the only location I can find a histogram function is in the data calculator. However, it is not letting me add time data into the data set.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The time history needs to be converted from a LDSF, which is outside the LMS project, to a time history within the LMS project file (*.lms).
Do this by displaying the time data history in the Navigator. After selecting/clicking on the data in the display (so little squares appear on it), press the * icon in the conditioning toolbar and multiply the history by 1.
The time history is transferred into the *.lms file in a folder called "Conditioning". Select the time history from the conditioning folder and put it into the input basket (right click -> add to input basket).
After going to the Data Calculator in the Navigator, used the middle icon to put the contents of the input basket into the calculator. Multiple time histories can be selected at once. Each time history is assigned an id, like "F1" or "F2" , etc.
Then do the HISTOGRAM calculation.
