The Formula Builder allows you to construct complex, derived results using arithmetic, trigonometric and logarithmic expressions. The Formula Builder is standard in L3 systems and optional for L2 Plus, L2 and S2 systems. The Formula Builder for L2 and S2 systems supports basic arithmetic functions only- add, subtract, multiply and divide.

This example shows a full graph view of an adhesive test. Three peaks are identified based on the sensitivity of 14.1 after the Lmax (maximum peak). The qualified peaks are highlighted in blue and identified as Lmax1, Lmax2 and Lmax3.

Using the Formula Builder, an expression was created that is an average of the three Lmax values only. The Lavg in this example application does not average all data points, but only the Lmax values. The formula you create is evaluated real-time. Syntax errors are noted by displaying a red line around the formula input box. If the formula is correct, the line is green.
