The Graphotron 2000 is a part and a plugin used to plot sensor output and flight information.
Requires KSP 0.18!
Seeing all those sensors in KSP 0.18, but not knowing what to do with them? Now, you can use them to do SCIENCE! Use the Graphotron 2000 to plot sensor output and flight data against time and get insight into the performance of your space rocket, the usefulness of Duna atmosphere for aerobraking at differentt altitudes, and whatever else you can come up with.
Thanks to DYJ for providing the awesome part model, and to khyperia for the great pixel font.

How to use
The Graphotron 2000 can be found in the Science tab of the VAB/SPH.
Right-click the Graphotron 2000 in flight to bring up the interface. Click the "Sources" button to select data sources for your plot. Set the plot resolution (how much time equals to 1 pixel of plot width), the desired plot height, and choose whether to print min/max labels or a legend on the plot, and whether to use a large font. Click the "Draw Plot" button to start collecting and plotting data, click it again to stop.
When plotting is active, data is always collected from all available sources. You can switch sources and various options on and off while plotting without loss of data (exception: reducing the number of data points will erase all data points beyond the new number).
Click "Save to PNG" to save the current plot to a .png file, located at [your KSP folder]/PluginData/Graphotron/[date time].png. Click "Save to CSV" to create a CSV file with the raw data of the currently displayed graph at the same location.
When the Graphotron UI is hidden, plotting does not stop. The Graphotron 2000 will continue plotting until stopped manually, no ElectricCharge is available, or it is destroyed or detached from the craft.
You can toggle the Graphotron UI as well as the plotting process using action group assignments.
If you are not getting data from your sensors, check that they are activated and attached to the same vessel as the Graphotron.
If the "Draw plot" button keeps deactivating itself, check there is enough ElectricCharge available to power the Graphotron.
Printing graph legend is only possible using the large font.
