Automatic Switching Between Data Screens

You can configure Normal data screens to switch automatically between them depending on a variable's value. To enable the automatic switching, you have to define four non overlapping ranges by giving lower and upper limit for each range and then associate them with the screens. during data logging, when selected variable falls between lower and upper limit of any of these ranges, DASH3 jumps to the relevent screen.

follow the steps described below to enable the automatic jumping feature:

1. Click on the Configuration -> Configure Display Screens menu item to open the Configure Display Screen dialog.

2. Select a variable from the Variable drop down box.

3. Enter Lower limit and Upper limit for each screen in the table.

  • Ranges must be within the minimum and maximum values possible for the selected variable.
  • Ranges should not overlap each other.
  • Lower limit value must be less than the higher limit value, otherwise automatic jumping will be disabled for that screen.

4. Press OK to save the changes and exit from the dialog.

5. Send the configuration to the DASH3.

If you define overlapping ranges, then jumping to a screen is depend on the priority of the screen. Screen 1 has the highest priority and screen 4 has the lowest.

Example: let say that a variable could take values between 1 and 100. you may define 4 ranges as follows.

Lower limit Upper limit
Screen 1 1 10
Screen 2 12 25
Screen 3 21 40
Screen 4 40 80
  • if the variable value takes the value of 23 then DASH3 jumps to the Screen 2( if Screen 2 is not being dispalyed already).
  • if the variable value is 40 then DASH3 jumps to the Screen 3, because Screen 3 has the highest priority than the Screen 4.
