NAME

Lab::Moose::Instrument::AdjustRange - Role for automatic adjustment of measurement ranges.

VERSION

version 3.671

DESCRIPTION

This role provides the 'adjust_measurement_range' method, which selects a measurement range suitable for the current input signal.

METHODS

adjust_measurement_range

 my $value = $instrument->get_value();
 my $old_range = $instrument->adjust_measurement_range(
     value => $value,
     verbose => 1,
 );
 my $new_range = $instrument->get_range();

To limit the allowed ranges, supply an arrayref with allowed ranges:

 $instrument->adjust_measurement_range(
     value => ...,
     allowed_ranges => [0.1, 10],
 );

If verbose is set, carp whenever the measurement range is changed.

By default, the range is changed, whenever the signal exceeds 100% of the measurement range, this factor can be adjusted with the safety_factor attribute.

 $instrument->adjust_measurement_range(
     ...,
     ...,
     safety_factor => 0.8, # change range when signal is at 80% of current range
 );

REQUIRED METHODS

allowed_ranges

Arrayref with allowed ranges

set_range

 $instrument->set_range(value => $new_range);

Set measurement range.

get_range

 $instrument->get_cached_range();

Get current range from cache.
