Create Signal Data Using Standard Waveforms

In the Signal Editor tab, create signal data from the standard waveform options. These are the standard waveforms with default properties.

  • Constant — Straight line waveform with a default value of 1.

    Constant waveform of value 1.

  • Step — Step waveform with default initial value of 0 and final value of 5.

    Step waveform with default initial value of 0 and final value of 5.

  • Pulse — Pulse waveform with default initial value of 0, pulse at trigger 5, and pulse duration of 1.

    Pulse waveform with default initial value of 0, pulse at trigger 5, and pulse duration of 1.

To change the data from these waveforms, you can manually modify them in the plot. If you want to create multiple waveform plots with the same set of initial data, you can change the default signal properties for the waveform.

  1. Start Signal Editor.

  2. In the toolstrip, click Scenario.

  3. To add a pulse waveform to the scenario, select the scenario and from the Insert section, click Pulse.

  4. In the signal hierarchy, click the Pulse check box.

    Pulse waveform with default initial values and table of data.

  5. To change the default of the pulse waveform and its data, in the toolstrip, click Defaults (Signal Editor Defaults button.).

  6. In the Pulse tab of the Defaults dialog box, change the values as desired. For example:

    Pulse waveform tab of Defaults dialog box with .

  7. To add a second pulse waveform to the scenario, select the scenario and from the Insert section, click Pulse.

    Pulse waveform with default initial value of .5, pulse at trigger 5, value at trigger 2, and pulse duration of .5.
