Synchronising Data

Viewing recorded data in overlays is often a useful way of comparing data from more than one logger, but quite often processes that need to be compared don't start at the same time.

To address this, Tinytag Explorer can display data in relative time, and data traces can be moved relative to each other, synchronising them so that significant events (the start of a cooling curve, or the start of a test cycle, for example) can be compared.

To do this, open the traces you wish to compare and combine them into an overlay.

Once in an overlay, go to View, Time Display Format and select Relative Time.

The traces will now be displayed relative to one another, with the x-axis labelled with the time since the loggers were started. To move traces relative to each other, you can enter offsets by going to the Align menu and selecting Edit Offsets.

If a particular value is of interest, you can enter this value by going to Align and Set Sync Points and you can then synchronise your data at this point by selecting Align, Sync at Setpoint and selecting the appropriate value from the options provided (Tinytag Explorer will then synchronise the data at the first transit of the setpoint in each recorded data set).
