The profileView is ok, but just too much. I would just like to see a line chart that represents a cross-direction profile at a given timestamp in ProcessBook.
Have you considered using PI Vision instead of PI ProcessBook? What would the line chart look like?
This is what I have: Each bar represents a different pi tag and I get the value at the same time stamp.
This is what I would like to have:
Can PI Vision do this?
If you can mock up a screen shot using Excel or something like that and post a screen shot, that would help immensely.
You might be able to do something clever with XY plot, using one axis as the "positions". Straightforward if you were using AF tables but assume you have real time data. This make take some finessing of the data, such as having accompanying attributes with an integer representing the position.
...As Mariana said... PI Vision!.... but ProcessBook has XY as well.
You should be able to do this using the PI Vision XY plot. You would create an attribute for each of scan-mtnnn and they have a value of scan-mtnnn. Then you would use these attributes as the X of the pair Y tag that has %.
But the one shortcoming is that I don't believe there be a way to connect the dots. You'd simply have markers at each scan location.
Another thing you could do - use bar charts, all scaled the same and adjacent to each other. Not the same look as you show, but would still convey the profile.
The X-Y plot uses the value of a y tag to the value of a x tag. There is not a way to have the graph show the individual x values,
Yes right. What I mean is to pair the tag with the percent (Y) with the attribute that has the position value (X). Although I made a mistake before, the attribute scan-mtnnn should have a value of n (such 1,2,3).
Also, you would have to set the time range of the display so as to only capture one "set" of data values at a time.
You would end up with something like this.
There might be a workaround to achieve it but the 'profile view' like symbol is not included in PI Vision.

Thanks. I voted for it.
