The Bearing Curve evaluation integrated in Acquire Automation XT can be used on profile and area measurement data. It works by determining the percentage of data points at each ‘z height’, i.e. the bearing curve is drawn as %(z), where ‘z’ stands for the measured value, e.g. topography, film thickness or intensity. The percentage value is calculated by drawing a line/plane in x(y)-direction at each z value and determining the amount of data points (length or area) above the line/plane. Then the ratio, i.e. the percentage is calculated from the number of valid values above and the entire amount of valid data points. As a result of this evaluation, the graph of the bearing curve is shown as well as the outcome values for user-defined Material Ratios z(%) and Material Heights %(z).
In the section Compose Task, the Bearing Curve evaluation can be added to a profile or area measurement by using the drag and drop function. After clicking on the evaluation, the evaluation parameters can be edited. In the data log section, the results and reports can be viewed.
