Create Displacement Graph

  1. Go to Setup -> Displacement Graph

  2. Click +  to create new Displacement Graph

  3. Click  to add variables to the Graph.


  4. # Select Site where the data is stored in
    # Select the Baseline reading
    # Click Select Variables to add Variables to the graph
    # Use the controls on the right hand side to set the location of each Variable.

  5. Configuration Tab
    # Give the Graph a Name
    # Initial Depth is optional. It will add an Anchor to the graph.
    # Reference Point (Bottom/Top) is used to tell VDV where to start to calculate the Cumulative movement. Bottom=Largest Number, Top=Smallest number

  6. Presentation tab

    # Choose Graph type.
    Displacement Cumulative = VDV Calculates Cumulative Displacement and subtracts the baseline reading
    Displacement Incremental = Incremental Displacement where the baseline is subtracted
    Deviation Cumulative = VDV Calculates Cumulative Displacement but does not subtract the baseline reading
    Deviation Incremental = VDV Displays the data as it is without any calculations.

    # Optional is the set the Depth and X Scale
    # Optional is to change how many plots are shown on the graph. Default is to show Latest 10 plots.

  7. Alarm Tab

    # Possible to add multiple alarm limits and choose custom colors and line width.
    # Note: If Monitor: Alarm Limits is not checked then the lines will be shown on the Graph but no alarms will be sent out.

  8. Layers Tab
    # Optional is to add Layers to the graph. Simply click Add and select layer type and color.

  9. Limit Profile
    # Optional is to add a Limit Profile which will be shown on the Graph.
