     Control & real time graph

      Smart Manager program provides 2kinds of  virtual control panel for control & data acquisition with real time graph. One is for single channel control and the other is multichannel control.  User can control and monitor in this control panel and he/she can monitor

           Multichannel Control Panel

      Multichannel real time graph

      data in VOI(value of interest) window and channel status in one window.  Real time graph’s X Y axis format will be changed per techniques automatically.  It can be defined by user's demand per techniques. For experiment using sequence file or batch file, user can select 3 real time graph's X, Y axis parameter.

      ingle channel control panel

      Each real time graphs format also can be selected. Real time graph format and VOI will be changed depending on DC test or impedance test automatically.  Virtual control panel can display graph for recent test result by setting.  For impedance measurement,  wave

      form monitor will be displayed on real time graph to check wave quality.  This monitor can be switched to Lissajous (I vs. E) plot. Graph.
      Smart Manager's graph function is to simplify the operation.  There are 3 kinds of graph per experiments. You can change X, Y1, Y2, Y3, Y4 axis parameter as you want.  Each graph provides short buttons. When you click these buttons, graph format will be changed following short button format.
