Formatting Plots

When you select the DS Plot window, EasyPower displays a Plot tab. You can format the dynamic stability plots with the commands in the tab.

Note: If you have purchased only the Transient Motor Starting module and not the Dynamic Stability module, your menus and options will reflect the names "Transient Motor Starting" or "TMS" instead of Dynamic Stability.

To view the data in the plot at the pointer position, select the Data Cursor check box on the Plot tab. The top right corner for legend will show the coordinates of the pointer.

To format the plot, right-click on the plot area and select desired command from the context menu, or select the option from the Plot tab. The following format options are available.

  • Format Title
  • Format Plot Area
  • Format X Axis
  • Format Y Axis

The formatting changes can be stored as defaults so that new plots are automatically created using the default format. In the individual format dialog boxes, make your changes and then click Default to set the new default value.
