Integrate
The Integrate I/O integrates the source's data, it is the inverse of the Differentiate operation.

A typical application of the Integrate I/O is when measuring acceleration sensor signals. Integrating the acceleration signal will give a signal representing the speed. Integration of the speed will give the relative position.

Properties

To control the behavior of the Integrate I/O, several properties are available. These can be accessed through a popup menu which is shown when the I/O is right clicked in the Object Tree. The properties can also be accessed through its settings window which is shown when the I/O is double clicked in the Object Tree. To open the Object tree, click the Show object tree Show object tree button.

Leak frequency

An ideal integrator integrates all frequencies in a signal. In practice, unwanted offsets can cause problems with an ideal integrator. Therefore the integrate I/O contains a leakage parameter, controlled by the Leak frequency property. All frequencies below the leak frequency will be suppressed.
