The filtering factor determines how quickly the results of measurement cycles are reflected in values of output parameters. You can use the filtering factor to slow down the response time of the measurement, filtering out rapid changes and measurement noise.
Maximum value (1) = No filtering, fastest measurement. Output shows 100% of the most recent measured value.
Less than maximum value = Filtering is applied and measurement response time is reduced. For example, defining a value that is 90% of the maximum value means that the filtered output reading = 90% of the most recent measured value + 10% of the previous reading.
Filtering factor settings can be configured with the Insight software, the Indigo80 handheld indicator, or using the Modbus protocol.
