1. FAQ: How do I put a pump curve in Seeq? As of R21.0.44.00 this can be done the with the scatter-plot tool. This method does require version R21.0.44.00 or newer to work. See the steps below for details. Determine the X&Y components of the curve. This can be done with a tool such as https://apps.automeris.io/wpd/. Enter or paste the components in columns A and B in the CurveFitter excel sheet. See screenshot below for details. The CurveFitter file can be found here. CurveFitter.zip Once the new Flow and Head data has been pasted into excel copy the contents in from D2 to E9 and paste them into the Seeq formula tool. See screenshots below for copy paste details Copy: Paste: Paste the following syntax in the same formula under the coefficients. Be sure that the flow signal has the variable name “\$flow”. \$f=\$flow.remove(\$flow.isNotBetween(\$lower,\$upper)).setunits('') \$coeff4*\$f^4+\$coeff3*\$f^3+\$coeff2*\$f^2+\$coeff1*\$f+\$const Final formula view: Add the line to the Scatterplot by selecting the f(x) in the Scatterplot tool bar and pick the correct item from the select item dropdown. If adding more than one curve, then click on the item properties “i” of the first curve and click on duplicate. Once in the formula tool copy the new coefficients from excel replacing the old one and hit execute. Follow step 5 to add the curve to the plot. Final View:

• • 2. FAQ: I've created a condition for a particular event of interest and now I would like to create a signal that is the running count of these events in a given time period. This analysis is common in equipment fatigue use cases when equipment degrades slowly based on a number of cycles (thermal, pressure, tension, etc) that it has undergone during it's life or since a last component replacement. Solution: We can convert each of these capsules into a signal comprised of a single sample (with value of 1) per capsule, then take a running sum of this new signal over the current equipment life condition. 1) Use Formula to create a signal with a constant value of 1 and a sample every 1 second. (1).toSignal(1sec) 2) Use Signal from Condition to create a new signal with a single sample of value 1 per capsule. Take the average of the "1 signal" during each of the event capsules. 3) Use Formula to calculate the running sum of the 1 sample per capsule signal during the Current Equipment Life capsule. \$OneSamplePerCapsule.runningSum(\$CurrentLife).toLinear(7d)
3. In some cases you may want to do a calculation (such as an average) for a specific capsule within a condition. In Seeq Formula, the toGroup() function can be used to get a group of capsules from a condition (over a user-specified time period). The pick() function can then be used to select a specific capsule from the group. The Formula example below illustrates calculating an average temperature for a specific capsule in a high temperature condition. // Calculate the average temperature during a user selected capsule of a high temperature // condition. (The high temperature condition (\$HighT) was created using the Value Search tool.) // // To prevent an unbounded search for the capsules, must define the search start/end to use in toGroup(). // Here, \$capsule simply defines a search time period and does not refer to any specific capsules in the \$HighT condition. \$capsule = capsule('2019-06-19T09:00Z','2019-07-07T12:00Z') // Pick the 3rd capsule of the \$HighT condition during the \$capsule time period. // We must specify capsule boundary behavior (Intersect, EnclosedBy, etc.) to // define which \$HighTcapsules are used and what their boundaries are (see // CapsuleBoundary documentation within the Formula tool for more information). \$SelectedCapsule = \$HighT.toGroup(\$capsule,CapsuleBoundary.EnclosedBy).pick(3) // Calculate the temperature average during the selected capsule. \$Temperature.average(\$SelectedCapsule)
4. A question came up recently that I thought would be of wider interest: how can I prevent interpolation across batch/capsule boundaries? In batch processes, lab samples are often taken periodically throughout the course of a batch. When viewing these samples in Seeq, you may encounter times when samples are interpolating between batches rather than just within a batch. In the image below, the periods highlighted in yellow correspond to this unwanted interpolation. The following formula is one way of preventing this interpolation. \$signal corresponds to your signal of interest and \$condition corresponds to your batches you want to prevent interpolation across. combineWith( \$signal, Scalar.Invalid.toSignal().aggregate(startValue(), \$condition.removeLongerThan(40h), startKey()) ) This results in the following signal that has our desired behavior:
5. Recently an interesting question came up about converting a number to binary within Seeq. The goal was to convert an integer (0-255) to an 8-bit binary number. This can be done by dividing the integer by 2, 8 times and keeping track of the remainders. More information about binary numbers can be found here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_number Note: For this conversion to work the input signal needs to be an integer between 0 and 255, also it cannot have units. Below is the formula syntax that will do the conversion. \$i=\$signal.ceiling().setUnits('') \$div1=(\$i/2).floor() \$div2=(\$div1/2).floor() \$div3=(\$div2/2).floor() \$div4=(\$div3/2).floor() \$div5=(\$div4/2).floor() \$div6=(\$div5/2).floor() \$div7=(\$div6/2).floor() \$div8=(\$div7/2).floor() \$rem1=(\$i/2-\$div1).ceiling().toString() \$rem2=(\$div1/2-\$div2).ceiling().toString() \$rem3=(\$div2/2-\$div3).ceiling().toString() \$rem4=(\$div3/2-\$div4).ceiling().toString() \$rem5=(\$div4/2-\$div5).ceiling().toString() \$rem6=(\$div5/2-\$div6).ceiling().toString() \$rem7=(\$div6/2-\$div7).ceiling().toString() \$rem8=(\$div7/2-\$div8).ceiling().toString() \$rem8+\$rem7+\$rem6+\$rem5+\$rem4+\$rem3+\$rem2+\$rem1 Below is a screenshot of the syntax in the formula tool. Result:

• • 6. Use Case: Users are often interested in identifying when a particular process is operating in a specific mode, or when it is in transition between modes. When looking at these transition periods, you may want to know what the modes of operation were immediately before and after the transition. If you can assign the starting and ending modes during a transition period to each transition capsule, you can filter for specific types of transitions and get a better idea of what to expect during like transitions. Solution: For Versions R.21.0.43 + 1. Add a signal to your display that describes the mode of operation you are interested in. In this example I have added the Example Data > Cooling Tower 1 > Area A > Compressor Stage string signal. Other signals that this use case applies to may include: production grade code, equipment operating mode, signal for step in a sequential or batch process. 2. Next we can use Formula to create a new condition comprised of capsules each time our Compressor Stage signal changes value. These capsules will contain a new capsule property called 'StartModeEndMode' that represents the value of the compressor stage immediately before and immediately after the signal changed value, or transitioned. The formula syntax to achieve this is: //creates a condition for 1 minute of time encompassing 30 seconds on either side of a transition \$Transition = \$CompressorStage.toCondition().beforeStart(0.5min).afterStart(1min) //Assigns the mode on both sides of the step change to a concatenated string that is a property of the capsule. \$Transition .transform( \$cap -> \$cap.setProperty('StartModeEndMode', \$CompressorStage.toCondition() .toGroup(\$cap, CAPSULEBOUNDARY.INTERSECT) .reduce("", (\$seq, \$stepCap) -> \$seq + \$stepCap.getProperty('Value') //Changes the format of the stage names for more clear de-lineation as a property in the capsules pane. .replace('STAGE 1','-STAGE1-').replace('STAGE 2','-STAGE2-').replace('TRANSITION','-TRANSITION-').replace('OFF','-OFF-') ))) and the Output is: Note that we added the new property 'StartModeEndMode' to the Capsules Pane. 3. We can now filter this condition to look for specific transitions of interest. In this example, we are interested in every time our compressor went from a TRANSITION state to STAGE2. Use Formula and the filter() function with the following syntax to achieve this. //Create a new condition comprised only of capsules where the 'StartModeEndMode' property is equal to '-TRANSITION--STAGE2-' \$ConditionCreatedInStep2.filter( \$capsule -> \$capsule.getProperty('StartModeEndMode').isEqualTo('-TRANSITION--STAGE2-')) and the Output is: 4. Now we are able to add other signals of interest to the display and switch to Capsule Time view to observe how those signals behave during these similar transition events.
7. FAQ: For reporting purposes, I want to calculate statistics based on the current period to date and display that next to the periods immediately preceding it. This is easy to do using the custom date range tool in Organizer Topic (Creating a Periodic Condition and the grabbing the capsule closest to or offset by 1 from the end). Is there a way to create these same date ranges relevant to the current time in Seeq Workbench? Solution: We can create identical conditions in Seeq Workbench by following the methods below. The first method defines how to create conditions for current and previous conditions for years, days, weeks, shifts. The second method includes an extra step that is necessary for current and previous months and quarters since the exact duration of these periods can vary based on the number of days each month. Method 1 - when the length of time in each period is definitive (e.g. year, week, day, shift). This example shows how to create conditions for "Current Week" and "Previous Week" 1. Create a Periodic Condition for "Weekly" using the Periodic Condition tool. 2. Create a Condition around the current time ("Now") using Formula --> condition(1min, capsule(now() - 1min, now())) 3. Use the Composite Condition tool to create a condition for "Current Week" when the Periodic Condition "Weekly" touches the tiny capsule at "Now". 4. Use Formula to create a condition for the "Previous Week" --> \$currentWeek.beforeStart(7d) Method 2 - when the length of time in each period is variable (e.g. month, quarter). This example creates a condition for "Current Month" and "Previous Month" 1. Create a Periodic Condition for "Monthly" using the Periodic Condition tool. 2. Create a Condition around the current time ("Now") using Formula --> condition(1min, capsule(now() - 1min, now())) 3. Use the Composite Condition tool to create a condition for "Current Month" when the Periodic Condition "Monthly" touches the tiny capsule at "Now". 4. Use Formula to create a Condition for the last day of the last period (in this case "Last Day of the Last Month") \$currentMonth.beforeStart(1d) 5. Use the Composite Condition tool to create a condition for the "Previous Month" when the Periodic Condition "Monthly" touches the "Last Day of Last Month".
8. Hi, I have a strange issue when aggregating data in a histogram. I am counting the number of samples for a signal and aggregate by first using "Year" and the using "Day of the Week" as the aggregation type: This gives me the following histogram with a count of 246 samples for monday in 2012: But these data should belong to sunday. I set up another histogram using the following condition as the second aggregation type: The result now looks like this (which is correct): This is for the other days as well. Is there any way to get around this issue? Installed Seeq version is R21.0.40.01-v201812312325 Regards, Thorsten
9. Summary Chain View enables a nice visual of all the time periods stacked side-by-side; however, sometimes it is useful to create a new signal from all these capsules that has been scrunched together. This avoids the maximum limit of how many capsules can be shown in Chain View. Note this is different from "time warping" which realigns the samples by some amount. Signal scrunching keeps the relative sample alignment the same within each capsule - but it does move each "snippet" of the signal next to each other. Steps Here is a screenshot of all the signals and conditions needed for this analysis. Add signal to the display with the specified time range. Create the time periods, condition capsules, of interest. Using the Custom Condition tool, create a new capsule that surrounds all the capsules containing the data for the new signal. Note, the signal will start at the beginning of this capsule. Create Inverse of the time periods of interest that occurs within the 'Condition for New Signal'. This will be used to calculate the time lag between the capsules in the 'Condition for Time Periods of Interest'. \$cftp.inverse().removeLongerThan(1wk).intersect(\$cfns) Create the signal snippets that occur only within the 'Condition for Time Periods of Interest' and the 'Condition for New Signal'. \$t.within(\$cftp.intersect(\$cfns)) Create a new signal to calculate the delay between each of the 'Condition for Time Periods of Interest' capsules. 1.toSignal().aggregate(totalized(), \$icfc, startKey()).convertUnits('h').toStep() Create a running sum of the delay - this will be used to shift all the snippets to the beginning of the 'Condition for New Signal' capsule. \$dbtp.runningSum(\$cfns) Scrunch the signal. \$ts.delay(0-\$rsod, 1wk)
10. FAQ: I've got a signal with drop-outs and I want to filter my signal to only visualize samples with values above a threshold. Is there a quick way to do this in Seeq? Solution: We can use Seeq's Signal Filtering capabilities to break down a signal into individual samples and create a new signal that keeps the samples only above your specified threshold. 1. Visualize your signal with drop-outs and determine the threshold value. For this example, we will filter out all samples with a value of less than or equal to 40F. 2. Open a new Seeq Formula window and use the search documentation to look for information on filtering a signal. When we begin to type filter, we see right away an option "filter() Signal". Open the documentation to get an understanding of what the function is doing and example syntax. The first example below is taking a string signal and breaking it down into samples, then keeping samples only if their string value is not equal to 'T4A' (note single or double quotes are required for string inputs). The second example is filtering to remove infinite values or NaN values. The first logical statement "\$sample.getValue().isValid()" is keeping only the samples with valid values, removing NaN or other invalid values. The second logical statement "\$sample.getValue().isFinite()" is keeping only the samples with finite values. Note that we can string as many logical criteria together as we want here using the && operator. In our case, we want to filter our temperature signal to show only samples with values above 40F. The syntax in the formula input window below "\$Temp.filter(\$sample -> (\$sample.getValue().isGreaterThan(40)))" shows how we are able to take our temperature signal, break it down into individual samples, and then only keep samples whose value is greater than 40F. The new filtered signal appears nearly exactly the same as the original, but with the drop-outs removed.
11. We often do calculations where we are interested in having one result if one condition is true and a second result if another condition is true. In this post we will discuss how to do this calculation in Seeq. We will create a new single signal which runs different calculations during different periods of time. This technique can be used to replicate "if" logic or "if / else" logic currently being used in excel. Example existing code from excel or other systems IF Temperature > 90 then show a result of (Temperature * 100) IF Temperature < 90F then show a result of (Temperature + 10) Step 1: Identify two modes of operation In the Tools tab identify the following conditions using the Value Search tool: Step 2: Use formula to reconstruct "if/then statement" using Seeq's Splice Tool Variables: Name Item Type \$Temperature Temperature Signal \$HighTempCondition Greater than 90 Condition Seeq Formula: \$HighTempCalc = \$Temperature * 100 \$LowTempCalc = \$Temperature + 10 \$LowTempCalc.splice(\$HighTempCalc,\$HighTempCondition) Section 1 - \$HighTempCalc This is the first arbitrary calculation which is to be run during periods of high temperature Section 2 - \$LowTempCalc This is the first arbitrary calculation which is to be run when NOT in periods of high temperature Final - \$LowTempCalc.splice(\$HighTempCalc,\$HighTempCondition) Combine your two series. Use the LowTempCalc series, unless you are in the High Temperature condition, in which case use the HighTempCalc
13. FAQ: I have a condition for events of variable duration. I would like to create a new condition that comprises the first third of the time (or 4th, or 10th) of the original condition. Solution: A stepwise approach can be taken to achieve this functionality. 1. Begin with your condition loaded in the display pane. 2. Create a new Signal using Signal from Condition that calculates the total duration of each of your event capsules, interpolated as a step signal. 3. Create a new signal that is your total event duration multiplied by the proportion of the event that you would like to capture. e.g. for the first 1/3 of the event, divide your total duration signal by 3, as shown below. 4. Create an arbitrary discrete signal with a sample at the start of each of your event capsules. 5. Shift the arbitrary discrete signal in time by the value of your signal calculated in step 3. In this example, the 1/3 duration signal. Note, depending on your version of Seeq, the function to do this may be called move() or delay(). 6. Use the toCapsules() function in Formula to create a tiny (zero duration) capsule at each of your shifted, discrete samples. 7. Join the start of your original condition with the capsules created in step 6 using the composite condition tool.
15. FAQ: I have a signal with a gap in the data from a system outage. I want to replace the gap with a constant value, ideally the average of the time period immediately before the data. Solution: 1. Once you've identified your data gaps, extend the capsules backwards by the amount over which time you want to take the average. In this example, we want to fill in the gap with the average of the 10 minutes before the signal dropped, so we will extend the start of the data gap capsule 10 minutes in the past. This is done using the move function in Formula: \$conditionForDataGaps.move(-10min,0min) 2. Use Signal from Condition to calculate the average of the gappy signal during the condition created in step 1. Make sure to select "Duration" for the timestamp of the statistic. 3. Stitch the two signals together using the splice function. The validvalues() function at the end ensures a continuous output signal. \$gappysignal.splice(\$replacementsignal,\$gaps).validvalues()
16. I have an interesting question that I need some assistance on. We have a signal that generally has no dominant frequency. However, it sometimes does get a dominant frequency and when it does, we are really interested in two things: What is the dominant frequency? How dominant is it? ( Let's call this "magnitude." ) Tracking both the dominant frequency and the intensity over time using a rolling 2 to 3 hour window every 5 minutes. This value has predictive capability when it does show up, and it intensifies as it gets closer to a particular event we are trying to predict. I've been able get the peak frequency because the formulas are clear enough to figure this out. The problem is the magnitude. The "Frequency Analysis" panel results show something like this: How do I get that peak value? I don't want to have to specify a hard-coded frequency band for this. The problem is that I don't see a function for that. I can call the fft() function in a way in which it returns a "Table" type. signal.fft ( bounds , period , units ) : Table Create a table of frequency magnitudes by analyzing the signal in the bounds. The table will have 2 columns, frequency and magnitude. Then I can use the top() function to return the top 1 row ordered by the greatest "magnitude" column: table.top ( limit , columnName , direction ) : Table However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the "mangitude" value out of the first row returned in "Table" the above function and convert it into a sample at the ending point of the rolling 3 hour/5min period. Is this even possible. Is there a better way? // Getting a rolling 3 hour window every 5 minutes. \$periods = periods(3h, 5min) // for condition, get a signal with samples ending at each capsule representing: // key: end of 3hr window // value: peak magnitude of the fft of the \$waveSignal \$periods.transformToSamples( \$cap -> { // excute the expression for each capsule in condition. \$tbl = \$waveSignal.fft(\$cap, 1s, 's') // want the results in period lengths, not frequencies. // get the largest magnitude, filtering for the frequency/period length range of interest // get the first row of that table. \$r = \$tbl.filter('frequency'. isBetween(30s, 150s)) .top(1, 'magnitude', 'desc') .getFirstRow() // *******HOW DO I DO THIS???****** // convert that magnitude calculated to sample located at the end of this capsule. sample(\$cap.getEnd(), \$r.get('magnitude')) } ) Thanks in advance! Even better would be: getting the sum of the values in the peakFrequency +-/ 2s window.
17. Various parts of the world display date and time stamps differently. Often times, we get requests for changing the order of month and day in the timestamp string or to display the date as a Scorecard metric in a specific format. This can be done using the replace() operator in Formula. For example, let's say we wanted to pull the start time for each capsule in a condition and display it as mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm format: \$condition.transformToSamples(\$cap -> Sample(\$cap.getStart(),\$cap.getProperty('Start')), 1d) .replace('/(?<year>....)-(?<month>..)-(?<day>..)T(?<hour>..):(?<minute>..):(?<sec>..)(?<dec>.*)Z/' , '\${month}/\${day}/\${year} \${hour}:\${minute}') This takes the original timestamp (for example: '2019-11-13T17:04:13.7220714157Z') and parses it into the year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and decimal to be able to set up any format desired. The various parts of the string can then be called in the second half of the replace to get the desired format as shown above with \${month}/\${day}/\${year} \${hour}:\${minute}. From there, you can either view this data in the trend or use Scorecard Metric to display the Value at Start in a condition based metric. If the end time is desired instead of the start, the only changes needed would be to (1) switch the .getStart operator to .getEnd, and (2) switch the .getProperty('Start') to .getProperty('End'). Note: The '1d' at the end of the 2nd line of the formula represents the maximum interpolation for the data, which is important if you want to view this as a string signal. This value may need to be increased depending on the prevalence of the capsules in the condition.
18. Hello, I am trying to create a polynomial formula using the formula tool but I get the following error message "t is not compatible with t² at" with 'add' or 'subtract' after. Same with t² and t³. How can I create such formula? Example: 2 * \$a^3 + 5 * \$a^2 - 8 * \$a + 200
19. Hi, Is it possible to calculate the duration of valve opening (from time when change from "close" to "not close" to time when change from "not close" to "close") I've tried to do this by derivative function, but the values are string type. For the period of time, e.g. a year need to receive the number of the scalar values of these periods and then perform some calculations with formula with each of that scalar value.
20. Hey there, My question splits into two parts: Firstly, I want to create a condition based on multiple criteria: if signal A equal to 3, B equal to 4, C is greater than 5 than condition is valid. I know i could create 3 individual capsule and overlap them. Is there a simple way to use formula to do so? Secondly, in my analysis i have 10 signals and associated conditions(alert), then I want to know in the past 7 days how many alert in total(repeated instance or capsule doesnt count) ? and How long is the total alert time? Thank you
21. Background: When looking to identify trends or step changes in a signal, we typically recommend an approach of smoothing the signal, taking the first derivative, then identifying when that derivative is positive or negative. This method works well most of the time, but employing this technique in combination with others can be more effective at capturing trends/step changes when the value change in the signal is more subtle. Solution: When looking for step changes, we can use a technique of calculating a range of the signal on a rolling periodic basis and search for when the range exceeds some limit. We can then combine this condition with when the derivative is positive (increasing step changes) or negative (decreasing step changes) to capture our final condition. 1. Create a rolling window over which you will look at the range (max-min value) of the signal. In my example I used a 4h window every 30 minutes, because my tank draining events were typically never longer than 4h. Select the smallest time period that you can that is still longer than your longest draining event. 2. Use Signal from Condition to calculate the range (max-min) of your signal over each of the rolling windows. Make sure to place the time stamp of the statistic at the end of each rolling capsule. 3. Identify time periods when that range calculation is above some threshold. In this example we used a threshold of 2 based looking at the trend output of our step 2. If we zoom in on a smaller range of time, we see that our capsules for when the range value is high actually extend beyond the completion of our decreasing signal. 4. We can intersect this condition that we have identified for high range in the signal with a condition for when the derivative of the signal is negative to capture our desired events. First calculate the first derivative of the signal. We apply a smoothing agileFilter in this step as well to remove signal noise. 5. Identify when that derivative value is less than zero using the value search tool. 6. Now take the intersection of the condition for negative derivative of the level and the condition for high range. The final view of the original signal and the events identified: Use chain view to validate your calculations:
22. Seeq is often used to contextualize data with respect to production runs. These product runs may be a text or string signal that is the product code, or a very large numerical signal. Users commonly use Value Search to find a specific product run to further analyze. If they want to work with a couple of similar product runs, for example ones that start with or end with the same few letters or numbers, a few Value Searches followed by Composite Condition may be acceptable. This approach may not be realistic if there are hundreds of different product codes to analyze. Recently a user asked for a trim function because they wanted to categorize all product codes by the first few letters the product code. For example, ABC-123-XYZ and ABC-456-DEF would both fall under the "ABC" product category. In Excel, users might use something like the functions LEFT and RIGHT to return the first few characters (LEFT(3) in this ABC example). One way to do this text or string manipulation in Seeq is to use the replace() function with a regular expression. Regular expressions can be intimidating to those who have not used them before, but they can also be very powerful. A little exploration on sites like https://regex101.com can help evaluate what kind of regular expression is appropriate for a specific use case. Given the above example product codes, the below Seeq Formula incorporates a regular expression within the replace() function to parse the string signal by the "-" and then return only the first part of that parsed string based on the "\$1". \$productcode.replace('/(.*)-(.*)-(.*)/', '\$1') I could similarly categorize by the last three characters with a function like \$productcode.replace('/(.*)-(.*)-(.*)/', '\$3') Once this simplified text signal is available, any other tools can be used in the analysis. If the product code was a very large number instead of a string, apply toString() to benefit from the replace() function. There are often many ways to solve a problem. An alternate approach to categorize product codes like this might be to pair toCapsules() and filter() off the Value property in Formula. Perhaps the best solution is incorporating regular expressions into Value Search like in the example below to create conditions any time the product code starts with ABC (/^ABC.*/) or any time it ends with XYZ (/.*XYZ\$/). The slashes here indicate regular expressions should be used, similar to searching with regex in the Data Pane. But this approach is likely not obvious or easy without a little experience with regular expressions. So while regular expressions may feel foreign at first, do not be intimidated! They really can pay off in the long run.
23. I have a piece of equipment that regularly goes through cycles and I want to compare the cycles. In this case I know the exact date and time of the equipment runs so I have used the Custom Condition tool to specify my Previous Run and Current Run. Custom Condition allows you to enter dates for the condition you are interested in. This can also be done in formula. To create the condition for my Next Run I used Seeq's formula because this run is currently on going and I do not know the end date. This approach allows me to specify that this condition end at now. condition(2d, capsule('2020-06-01T17:48Z', now())) Now that I have defined my Previous, Current and Next runs I want to calculate the run time of each of those periods. I can do this in Seeq's formula tool using the time since function. This will allow me to create a signal whose value is the time since the start time of a condition. This signal will end at the end of the condition. In this case my time counter will be in hours, if you wanted it in days instead you would change the 1h to 1d. timeSince(\$condition, 1h) I duplicated this formula three times for my previous, current and next runs. Remember, you can always duplicate a formula by clicking the "i" by item properties. You can compare the run lengths of the 3 runs by putting them on the same lane and same axis. You'll noticed my Next Run has just started so the time since for it is much smaller. Lastly, you can switch to capsule time view to compare the run length as well as different signals over the run. In this case we are looking at the temperature of each run as well as the run length. You could imagine using this approach to monitor heat transfer coefficients, reactor temperature, reactor conversion, or % sulfur removed.
24. Question: How do I normalize a signal in Seeq? Sometimes it can be helpful to view data on a normalized scale or used normalized inputs in a model. Solution: This solution is posted using R22.0.47 but is applicable to earlier versions. Slight modifications of the formula may be required for earlier versions. 1. Let's start by loading our signal... 2. Next we'll use Formula to create a normalized signal. In Formula we do the following steps Define the time period over which we will do the normalization Calculate the min and max values which occur during that time period Calculate the delta between the min and max Finally, calculate the normalized signal Here is the code snippet if you'd like to copy and paste... \$timePeriod = capsule('2019-01-01T00:00-05:00', '2020-01-01T00:00-05:00') \$max = \$signal.maxValue(\$timePeriod) \$min = \$signal.minValue(\$timePeriod) \$delta = \$max - \$min (\$signal - \$min) / \$delta 3. View the results in Seeq. Note that I optionally created scalar boundaries at 0 and 1 to highlight the normalization of my signal...

• 25. Hello Everyone, I hope you are doing well. I need some help with creating a function. I have multiple conditions that I have created that tell me if the equipment is stopped, lag, standby, or other attributes. I want to be able to be able to: ADD Durations for when equipment is stopped and in lag OR when the equipment is stopped or standby. ADD Durations for when equipment is stopped but not in lag or standby. The example variables are in hours. Stopped (\$i5) Standby(\$i6) Lag (\$i) I would appreciate the help.
