When is Smoothing Used in VBOX Tools Software?


The smoothing that can be applied to individual channels in the Graph screen and in Report Generator is a ‘window smoothing’ routine. It smoothes an individual data sample using data from before and after the sample.

The number of samples used in the smoothing and the level of smoothing applied is determined by the chosen smoothing level. The software coded expression for this is as follows:

Tempsmooth =0
For loop2 = -smoothlevel to smoothlevel do
temp = loop + loop2
tempsmooth = tempsmooth + rawdata( temp)
new smoothed value (loop) = tempsmooth / (2 x smoothlevel +1)
smoothlevel = the smoothing level you wish to apply.


This smoothing is only for visual reference, the raw data is not changed using this process.
