Figure 1. Filtering factor setting in Insight

The filtering factor affects the speed at which the latest measurement is integrated into the output of the probe: a new measurement is produced approximately every two seconds. You can configure the filtering factor in Insight PC software by selecting  > Configure device > Measurement. The option is available only in Advanced mode of Insight.

By default, the filtering factor is set to 1.0 (1.0 = 100 in the configuration range of the Insight user interface), which means the latest measurement is shown directly in the output, without any filtering. To apply filtering, enter a lower filtering factor to include previous measurements in the calculation of measurement output. For example, changing the filtering factor to 0.1 results in an output that is a combination of previous measurements (90 %) and the latest measurement (10 %).

The configuration range of the filtering factor is 0 ... 100: for example, to set the factor to 0.5, set the value to 50 in the Filtering factor field.
