If you need to specify a numeric value, you can enter a number or a mathematic expression. If either the expression or number contains errors or invalid characters, a warning message is displayed.
Mathematic expressions can contain the following operators:
- + (plus)
- - (minus)
- * (multiply)
- / (divide)
- ^ (exponent)
Numbers and variables can be written in brackets or parentheses with unlimited insertion levels.
Mathematic expressions can also contain the following functions:
- sin, cos (sine, cosine)
- tan, atan (tangent, arc tangent)
- asin, acos (arc sine, arc cosine)
- log (decimal logarithm)
- ln (natural logarithm)
- exp (exponent of e)
- rtd (converts radians to decimal values)
- dtr (converts decimal values to radians)
- sqr (square)
- sqrt (square root)
You must enclose arguments in brackets or parentheses. Trigonometric function arguments are entered in degrees.
Example of correct expression: 1 + 2*sin (30) + 2*(2^2+sqrt (9))
The result is 16.
