LogTool: A Flexible, Publicly Available Data Analysis Tool Providing Graphical Analysis, Extraction of Data Subsets and Daytyping for Multiple Data Formats
MetadataShow full item record
LogTool is a publicly available, Visual Basic 6.0-based program developed to preprocess data obtained from the measurement of coincident power, flow and pressure of compressed air systems. The data are used to typify and create daily power draw profiles for estimating system annual energy consumption using the AIRMaster+ compressor simulation program. LogTool’s capabilities also allow visualization of interactions among multiple parameters for multiple pieces of equipment, showing inefficiencies and anomalies in systems so possible cures can be identified. Data plots can be copied into reports and subsets of data extracted for use in numeric analyses outside LogTool. Data are stored in MDB files accessible by MS Access and other software. LogTool recognizes text files created by ten different dataloggers or from simple Excel text files. Up to 100 channels with no practical limit on records are allowed. The minimum allowable data interval is one second.
