The function can be used e.g. for dynamically monitoring the consumption of liquids or for checking containers for leakages (based on fill level values).

The variable that was inserted into the function is monitored and its values are stored internally with the configurable measurement distance (in time units). If a specific difference is reached (number of measurements), the function will display the first result (R(n)-R(0)), which will then be updated after each measurement. The result of the function is an element of the set of real numbers.
