The Enterprise Analytics Toolbox (EATB) helps analyze large volumes of measurement data and assists organizations to solve real-world problems, supporting the prevalent “measure all/measure more” vision. We introduced EATB with some of its advanced MATLAB based analytic capabilities and functionalities in a previous blog post: Gain meaningful insight from your data with the Enterprise Data Analytics Toolbox,
With “measure all” in mind, we continue to strive to create the best analytic software for the industry. The new release, EATB 4.1, comes with one major new feature that will help engineers save even more time – the Configuration Creator. With the Configuration Creator, users can quickly create interactive charts to solve complex engineering challenges with just a few clicks of a button. The user interface is intuitive and very easy to navigate.
To use the Configuration Creator you start by simply importing one or more measurement data files into the tool by clicking “Signal Config”. This allows EATB to extract all the channel names from the measurement file.
As you can see, the first file (18MB) that EATB ingested created 775 channel labels. When we ran the import process again to ingest the second file (118MB), EATB created 65 additional channel labels. To ensure we have all of the channels that we need, we ran the import process for a third time, and EATB could not find any more new channel labels. This process to ingest files to create channel lables is very fast; the processing time is about the same when ingesting an 18MB file versus a 118MB file. This of course helps engineers save many hours of precious development time.
The Configuration Creator also comes with Channel Alias Management to allow engineers to work intelligently with various different types of hardware and equipment. Once EATB has all of the available channel labels, engineers can go through the full list of the signals and edit them individually. Adding a different name to the channel and updating hardware names is the best way to manage channel labels.
You no longer need to go through the process of creating configuration code to see how your data turned out. With all the available object types shown in the creator screen, the possibilities of creating intuitive and interactive visualization of development data is easier than ever.
