Note: When values are being edited in the text boxes, the font should change to red. To accept the input, hit [ENTER] or [TAB], then the font should change back to black, indicating that the value has been changed.
(However, take note that this type of process suspension is not present in real time processes. It is included here simply to facilitate the following procedures: 1) send the picture for printing, 2) allow time for setting PID parameters 3) allow time for changes in Relay parameters 4) allow for manual step changes in either u or setpoint.)
After a few seconds, a DATA button will appear.
Clicking the DATA button will show a window containing the time, input
and output data.
To transfer these data to other programs such as spreadsheets, mathematics packages or word processors, put the cursor inside the window and select the text to copy and transfer to the clipboard. (In Windows, right click on the mouse and choose SELECT ALL, then right click on the mouse again and choose copy). Proceed to the desired program, e.g. the spreadsheet and choose PASTE function on the desired location.
To remove the data window, just click on the HIDE DATA button.
To resume simulation, click on the RESUME button.
Prior to printing, it is strongly suggested to first PAUSE the simulation.
