InduSoft Symbol of the Week: Mini Trends

These great looking trends are this week’s symbol of the week. Use them in your dashboards to give contextual trend data to your values. Trends like these make it easier to see a gradual decline in efficiency or a slow creep toward machine problems, instead of only getting an alarm when it’s too late. Trends put data in context and make it much easier to understand and act on.
