Signal and Scope Manager

About the Signal & Scope Manager

Using the Signal & Scope Manager you can manage viewers and generators from a central point.

    Note:   The Signal and Scope Manager requires that you have Java® enabled when you start MATLAB®. This is the default.

Viewer and Generator

Symbols identify a viewer attached to a signal line and signal names identify generators. Manage viewers and generators using the Signal & Scope Manager.

Viewers and generators are not blocks. Blocks are dragged from the Library browser and are not managed by the Signal and Scope manager.

Open the Signal and Scope Manager

  1. From the Simulink® Editor menu, select Diagram > Signals & Ports > Signal & Scope Manager.

Change Generator or Viewer Parameters

  1. Open the Signal & Scope Manager.

  2. To the right side of the Generators and Viewers pane, click the Parameters button .

    • For a generator, the Generator Parameters dialog box opens.

    • For a viewer, a Viewer opens. From the viewer toolbar, select the parameters button . The Viewer parameters dialog box opens.

  3. Review and change parameters.

Add Signals to a Scope Viewer

Use the Signal Selector to add signals to a Viewer.

  1. To the right side of the Generators/Viewers pane, click the Signal Selector button .

    The Signal Selector opens. Use the Signal Selector to connect and disconnect generators and viewers.

  2. From the list of signals, select the check boxes for the signals you want to display in the selected viewer.

      Tip   After adding the new signals, run a simulation to make them visible.

Remove Signal Generator or Scope Viewer

  1. In the Generators/Viewers pane, select either a listed generator for viewer.

  2. On the right side, click the Delete button .

    The selected generator or viewer is removed from the table.

Viewing Test Point Data

You can use a Scope viewer available from the Signal and Scope Manager to view any signal that is defined as a test point in a referenced model. A test point is a signal that you can always see when using a Scope viewer in a model.

    Note:   With some signal viewers (for example, XY Graph, To Video Display, Matrix Viewer, Spectrum Scope, and Vector Scope), you cannot use the Signal Selector to select signals with test points in referenced models.

For more information, see Test Points.
