Get an overview of all batches that have been produced. With the press of a button, you can set the period to match the batch's duration. This action zooms in on that specific period for all other widgets on the page. Batches are determined based on a true/false value. Optionally, a batch name logged from the PLC can be displayed.

For this app, the source code is available on Github.
