Part 7: Access the full capability of FRT multi-sensor tools by using Hybrid Task and Hybrid Evaluation

Series: Acquire Automation XT – FRT´s Powerful Multi Sensor Software

Acquire Automation XT’s hybrid functions offer a sophisticated way of combining the measurement or evaluation results from different tasks and evaluations in order to create new data buffers or results. To access the full capability of our multi-sensor tools, hybrid functions in Acquire Automation XT are an important key component.

The program features two hybrid analysis functions and a hybrid measuring task. The two available hybrid analysis functions are Hybrid Evaluation (Arithmetic) and Hybrid Evaluation (Value Pairs). Like any other evaluation method, the Hybrid Evaluation can be added to a recipe by using the ‘drag & drop’ function in the recipe section. In general, a hybrid analysis needs at least two individual results as an input to create a new (combined) result.

The Hybrid (Arithmetic) evaluation allows for simple arithmetic operations which are applied to various results in order to create a combined result. By clicking on the evaluation function, the general settings can be accessed. In the Edit Parameter dialog the variables used for the evaluation can be defined. The available variables are all individual results from the preceding evaluations.

The Hybrid (Value Pairs) evaluation allows for simple arithmetic operations for pairs of values. The Edit Parameter dialog shows the list of value pairs to be evaluated. The user defines the name of the result value and the expression, i.e. the arithmetic operation which is applied to the variables to create the output value.

The Hybrid Task is a function which can be used to create a new data set from two previously measured data sets. In difference to the Hybrid evaluations, the Hybrid Task only writes new raw data. In order to get a result, an evaluation needs to be added to the task. By clicking on the task function, the general settings can be accessed. In the top section of the Edit Parameter dialog the two original measuring tasks (Task A and Task B) can be selected. Under “Method”, the operation which is used to create the new data set can be defined.

When running the measurement, the process view will show the raw data and the filtered data of the previous measuring tasks. After successfully completing the measurement, the result report can be seen. The result report contains the results of the individual analysis tasks and also the ones of the hybrid analysis.
