Dashboards

Easy as ABC!

DaqMon makes building charts dead-simple so that anyone can create stunning dashboards.
Neither do you need highly skilled software engineers who craft some magic SQL statements, nor do you need a degree in database management to understand what's going on.

Defining a chart is a matter of seconds: you just select the channels and DaqMon will immediately build a beautiful chart with meaningful default values (e.g. axis names, ranges, etc.).

Rearranging and resizing the charts is equally simple: just drag & drop the chart to the desired location - done!

Visual Controls

Recorder

Overview

The recorder is the most used and most powerful visual control. It shows your data over time (x-axis).

  • Mix line-chart or scatter-plot in a single recorder

  • Linear or logarithmic y-axis

  • Mix channels from all your measurement devices in a single recorder

  • Automatic aggregation: In the high-level view DaqMon will automatically show aggregated data which makes the display lightning fast. Choose from Min, Max, Min-Max or Average

  • Tooltip window: shows details of the data for immediate analysis

Zoom feature

The powerful zoom feature is easy to use: just click and hold to select the region of interest, then click to zoom in.
To zoom out you can double-click (or right-click) anywhere in the chart area.

Line Chart

Scatter Plot

Bar Chart

Bar-charts show the channels on the x-axis and aggregated data over the selected duration on the y-axis.

  • Linear or logarithmic y-axis

  • Optional series labels on the bars

  • Mix channels from all your measurement devices in a single bar-chart

  • Aggregation: choose from Min, Max, Sum, Count or Average

  • Tooltip window: shows details of the data for immediate analysis

Heatmap

The Heatmap is a colour-coded display of 2-dimensional data. You can choose 3 channels from the same channel group and immediately spot "hot" or "cold" regions.

  • X-axis: value or time

  • The interactive colour map can highlight and filter the data

  • Linear or logarithmic axes

  • Mix channels from all your measurement devices in a single bar-chart

  • Aggregation: Choose from Min, Max, Sum, Count or Average

  • Tooltip window: shows details of the data for immediate analysis

Table

The table control supports numeric and text data. It is very flexible and the conditional formatting allows to easily identify data of interest.

Multiple formatting options are supported (text-styles, background-colour, etc.). You can specify different formatting settings for the header or the values.

In addition to that you can specify conditional formatting: e.g. when the cell value is <0°C, the cell-colour should be blue.

Static Images

Upload arbitrary images to your dashboard.

For example to:

  • show the locations of the measurement devices on your monitoring target

  • upload schematics of the measurement setup, etc.

Static Text

Use the static rich text component to add detailed descriptions about the dashboard or the measurement setup. It supports:

  • header styles

  • font styles: bold, italic underlined

  • bullet lists

  • numeric lists

  • text alignment

  • links to external websites or to other dashboards

  • you can even enter text in different languages
