The Event Manager Add-On for LabChart monitors incoming signals, detects user-defined events, and performs associated user-defined actions.
The Event Manager Extension monitors LabChart data, such as:
- raw incoming signals
- online channel calculations
- computed functions
In response to changes in the monitored data, Event Manager can function as an 'alarm' and initiate many different actions, such as:
- flashing a light on-screen
- playing a sound
- adding a comment to the file
- playing a macro
- switching external equipment on and off using the PowerLab digital outputs
Event Manager can monitor all input signals that are visible on-screen during sampling. The results of channel calculations that are performed during sampling, such as Arithmetic and Smoothing, can be monitored. The results of offline calculations cannot be monitored because they are not visible during sampling.
