arduino: how to use the serial plotter of Arduino IDE

labeling the series#

If you have to print some debug messages in the beginning, the Serial Plotter will interpret these as Series Labels. To clear unneacessary labels, just restart the serial plotter (not the mc). In order to catch up the labels, you have to print them to Serial everytime you print values. So it is garanted that the series labels are recognized.

As seperators you can use a tabulator, a space or a comma.

Example:

// in each loop
Serial.println("Series1\tSeries2\tSeries3");
Serial.print(value1);
Serial.print("\t");
Serial.print(value2);
Serial.print("\t");
Serial.println(value3);
