FREE Cummins INSITE Software: Graphical Monitoring on CUMMINS Engines

Graphical Display

Figure 1.1 - Graphical Display (QSB3.3-CM2150) 

Graphical Monitoring is a way to display, log, print, and save data for up to six parameters in a graph. Graphical Monitoring visually monitors and plots multiple parameters into a graphical display.

The X (or horizontal) axis shows the sample rate, while the Y (or vertical) axis displays the parameter value. The scale will automatically update if the data increases or decreases to a point outside of the current range. If more than one parameter is selected, each graph will have the parameter listed on the right side and units on the left side of the window. Each data point represents a value at that sample point.

Parameters can also be added or removed during graphical monitoring and the data from the graph can be saved, exported or imported.

#Special Instructions
1). Open and connect the Cummins INSITE Software. Read More: How to Connecting CUMMINS Engines using Cummins INSITE Software.

2). Select Data Monitor/Logger on the Viewbar. Read More: Data Monitor/Logger on Cummins INSITE Software (CUMMINS Engines).

3). Perform one of the steps below to begin graphical monitoring:
a. From the menu bar, click on Tools and select Data Monitor/Logger, then select Start Graphical Monitoring.
Figure 1.2 - Start Graphical Monitoring
b. From the tool bar, click "Start Graphical Monitoring" button.
c. From the Parameter Groups or the individual Parameters list, right-click and select Start Graphical Monitoring.

4). From the Available Groups list, select the parameter(s) to monitor, log, and set the sampling rate. See the Selecting Parameters section for more details.

5). Select OK to graph the selected parameters or click on Cancel to return to Data Monitor/Logger.

6). To start monitoring data, click "Start Graphical Monitoring" button or select Graphing then Start Graphing on the menu bar (refer to Figure 1.1 above).

#Selecting Parameters (refer to Figure 1.3 above)
(a). Adding Parameters
→Under the Available Groups, click on the icon to expand the group name. This will display the parameters that can be selected for graphing.
→Select a parameter from the list and click on the Add button or double-click on the parameter. This will add the parameter to the Selected Parameters list. Once six parameters are selected, the Add button will be grayed out.
(b). Removing Parameters - Select a parameter from the Selected Parameters list and click on the Remove button or double-click on a parameter.
(c). Import from a File - Graphical Monitoring allows importing of a saved graph for viewing. Scrolling to the right and left allows viewing of the full graph.
→Select Import from the Parameter Selection window.
→The Open Log File window will open. Browse to the log file, this file will have an .elf extension.
(d). Click on Open to view the graph or Cancel to return to the Parameter Selection Window.
→Click >> to scroll right or click << to scroll left, to view the graph at different times.

#Setting the Sampling Rate (refer to Figure 1.3 above)
From the Parameter Selection window the Sampling Rate can be set.
→Enter the desired Sampling Rate (zero is out of range).
→Select milliseconds, seconds, minutes or hour.

#Graphing Menu
(a). Start Graphing - Select this option to start Graphical Monitoring.
(b). Stop Graphing - Select this option to stop Graphical Monitoring.

#Tool Bar Menu
(a). Add/Remove Parameters - Select to add and remove parameters while graphing. A window will open asking if the existing graph needs to be saved.
(b). Axis Scroll - Select to scroll along the X (horizontal) or Y (vertical) axes of the graph. If there are multiple graphs in this window, the X (horizontal) can only be moved by the graph at the bottom of the window. the Y (vertical) can be used on all graphs.
(c). Axis Zoom - Select to zoom in or out along the X (horizontal) or Y (vertical) axes of the graph. If there are multiple graphs in this window, the X (horizontal) can only zoom in and out by the graph at the bottom of the window. the Y (vertical) can be used on all graphs.
(d). Data Cursor - Select to display the value of the data point on the graph. When first selected, a vertical line appears in the center of the graph. This can be moved by selecting it with the mouse and dragging the line to either side of the graph.
(e). Page Setup - Select to select paper size, orientation, margins, printer properties, etc.
(f). Pause - Select to pause Graphical Monitoring.
(g). Play/Reset View - Select to play or reset Graphical Monitoring.
(h). Print - Select to print the graph as it is displayed on the screen.
(i). Print Preview - Select to preview the graph before printing.
(j). Save As Picture - Select this option to save the graph as a picture.
Figure 1.5 - Save As Picture
(k). Save/Export File - Select this option to save the logged data.
Figure 1.6 - Save Log File
The Save Log File window will display.
→Select the desired file format and click on Save.
  • Electronic Log File (.elf) format, which will allow the data to be imported and viewed in the Graphical Display. 
  • Comma Separated Values (.csv) or Tab-Delimited Text (.txt) format.
→After selecting the format, click Save.
→On the Export Log File window, use the default file name or enter a new file name.
→Select Save to save the data or Cancel to return to Graphical Display.
