The Power Chart component for Perspective allows you to quickly and easily create runtime-configurable time series charts from Tag Historian data. Now you can easily generate “ad hoc” charts within a Perspective session. Power Chart is also mobile-optimized so it adapts itself automatically for small screens.

Video Transcript:

Carl: The Perspective Power Chart includes the same great features found in the Easy Chart, but we really wanted to take it up a notch.

Colby: Out of the box, the Power Chart includes a built-in tag browser and penTag Browser and Pen table. Now, users can easily generate Ad Hoc charts within a Perspective session without having to stitch these features together in development. In addition, the pPen table provides statistical values that correspond to the plots and traces, providing an even richer analytical capability. Since the Power Chart is designed for the Perspective Module, the component has been designed to meet the needs of mobile users out of the box.

Carl: When the component is viewed on a mobile screen, the chart and its configuration options adapt themselves automatically to be touch-optimized and to be used on a small screen. There are many more features packed into this component such as built-in support for annotations, support for multiple simultaneous X-traces, runtime access reconfiguration, and much more.
