Controlling erratic values


    May 09 2009 | 4:11 pm
    Hi.
    Can anyone tell me what the object is called that monitors a stream of data and excludes any values that are 'erratic' based on set limits?
    Cheers all

      Depends on what you mean by monitoring a stream of data, but for integers and floats, 'split' does this within user-set minimum/maximum limits. There's also maximum and minimum. You can also use 'if then' statements(although it will show up as a having a bad expression, type 'if then' in a new object then click help-file), and you can also set up your own network of '', '==', '' objects. For signals, there's the signal versions of the comparison ops('

      There's an object called [lbyl] (look before you leap) that's available for download from the link below. It can be used to ignore values that jump too far unless they are repeated a certain number of times. You might find it useful.

      Ahh yes that's what I was looking for. Forgot that it was a CNMAT object.
      Thanks!

      another useful object for this type of thing is "slide".
