MC Sensors preferences

MC Sensors allows you to setup many settings of the sensors and which data and how it is displayed.

You can choose between the internal accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer and device rotation sensor data. Each sensor provides data of three axes, which you can activate/deactivate separately. By default everything is activated. Some sensors also give you the possibility to chose between angles in radians or degrees.

You may also choose between three languages: English, German and Russian.

All instruments can be activated/deactivated separately. If you don’t need FFT for example, turn it off in the settings.

The FFT menu gives you the possibility to change the frequency and level range. The Block size determines the analysis’ time window. You may apply a windowing function to sharpen peaks. Peaks can be automatically displayed (highest peak is detected and indicated.)

The oscilloscope and XY-view time rage settings affect the visible range of data. Both instruments also have a trigger function that automatically finds onsets, which stabilises the graph for periodical signals. In that case you can greatly improve readability and overall usability of the oscilloscope. However, if you are analysing non-periodic data you should turn the triggering off. The trigger level defines the amplitude threshold at which the oscilloscope scans for onsets. Adjust this value if you have problems to get a stable graph (due to noise or other irregularities).

In the level settings you can adjust the response time and the level range. The preferences menu offers three response modes: impulse (35 ms), fast (125 ms) and slow (1 s). Level peaks are indicated by horizontal lines, which inertially adapt to the current level over time (making them easily readable).
