New Signal Data Explorer Release v2.5

We've added some new features to SDE with version 2.5. Check it out using our 30-day trial. Existing licenced users can update via the same link.

Event Views

  • Search and visualise text events alongside time series data in the new Event Views;
  • Maintenance logs, control information, alerts and failures can be loaded into SDE, modified using the Annotation Editor and deployed to SDE, to be displayed alongside the signal data;
  • Use text searches, based on event name or description, to highlight or remove events and colour code displays using the Group ID.

Improved multi-variable search

The Task Planner has been extended to allow each sub-task within a multi-variable search to have the full flexibility of an individual pattern search.

  • Combine pattern searches with threshold limitations;
  • Apply amplitude restrictions to similarity searches;
  • Apply combinations of filters to the data, prior to performing a search.

Custom views

    • Create custom views for commonly opened data files;
    • Control the channels, scaling factors, zoom level and superimposed views that will be present in newly opened Auxiliary Views Windows for each dataset.

    Improved file handling

    • Simplified data import with new customisable timestamp format;
    • Merge multiple CSV files into a single dataset;
    • Save segments or whole datasets as smaller, more efficient NDF files.

    Structured datasets

    • Data stored in highly condensed format, that can be efficiently opened or searched;
    • Organise data according to site and/or unit;
    • Create custom tag lists for quick access to regularly used groups of channels;
    • Apply searches to all units within a site simultaneously.
