Select: Highlight/Select a channel in WinDaq and invoke WinDaq->View->Add-ons->Magic
Meter, and it will use the selected channel as its default channel when it is not in calculated channel mode.

Data Window to perform the following operations
None: The last reading
Average: Average all readings in the data window before presenting
Minimum: Display only the minimum reading within the data window
Maximum: Display only the maximum reading within the data
RMS: Perform RMS for all readings within the data window
AC RMS: Average all readings and use the result as offset.
Remove the offset of all readings then perform RMS
To use the data-window results, use #freq,
#ave, #rms and #acrms to represent Frequency, Minimum,
Maximum, Average, RMS, RMS without DC component in the
expression, i.e, #acrms0 take the ACRMS of channel 0.
Please select the window size carefully.

Fully programmable palette, gauge begin/end degree, min/max,
normal/high/low rang and display decimals for better visual effect
Note, since they can be customized and their values retained,
the Min and Max may not match the dynamic range of
the channel you are monitoring.
To use this feature, you should start the add-on from the
SAME WinDaq logical channel. For example, highlight the
second channel on WinDaq, start the add-on, set up the
add-on then exit. Now the configuration is saved in a
configuration file associated with second channel. You can
have multiple configurations for the same device, each
configuration associated with a different WinDaq logical
channel. To recall the configuration stored associated with
logical channel 2, highlight the channel on WinDaq, start
The logical channel mentioned above is not the physical
channel, it is the logical order of a physical channel
listed in the channel selection box. For example, we have
two WinDaq setups, one with physical channel 1,2,3,4,6,8,
and the another with physical channel 6,7,9,10,14,15. If the
add-on configuration is associated with the second logical
channel, then highlighting physical channel 2 from the first
setup then start the addon will be the same as highlighting
physical channel 7 then start the addon.
Min/Max retainers record the Minimum and Maximum readings
since its started or the last time the Gauge was configured.
Please note, since Gauge does NOT monitor every data point
acquired by the device, the min/max only reflects all the values
captured by WinDaq.
To reset Min/Max retainers, enter Gauge Configuration and
exit via OK button
Low/High are for extra visual support, for example to
indicate a certain threshold or danger zones. In the above
configuration screen shot, Low/High are outside of the Min/Max
to remove the zone
T.D/R.D specify the number of digits after decimal point
for the ticks on gauge face and reading in the lower center.
Start/Stop Degree defines the starting/ending point of the
Main defines the number of major ticks on the gauge face
Sub defines the number of minor ticks between two major
