TCatScopeView is an analysis tool with which it is possible to display variables from various software tasks (such as PLC tasks) graphically. Curves can be drawn versus time, or you can choose to see XY displays.

Each Scope View can utilize several channels, the number being limited only by the memory size and computing capacity. For time displays, one variable is assigned to each channel. Two variables per channel are assigned for an XY display.

Structure of the TwinCAT Scope View

TCatScopeView is divided into 3 main windows. A tree structure is visible on the left, where all the Scope Views and their channels are listed. The Scope Views themselves are on the right, and contain plots of the selected channels.

The lower window displays the properties of the element currently selected in the tree structure.
