Hi there!

I'm sending RFID Tags numbers (with alphanumeric characters) to ThingSpeak.

I was wondering why the chart doesn't show the data properly. I mean: "0F001CC96C" tag (Y Axis) at 10:25 AM (X Axis)

Best regards
David Blanco

The thingspeak chart expects numeric, logical, or datetime type data. I think your RDID tags look like strings to ThingSpeak, which it doesn't know how to plot. You can write a matlab visualization that converts the RFID value to a integer value. The RFID specification may give a hint about this conversion, but if not, a naive number substitution might work - a=1, b=2 etc. Or if you know you are dealing with a limited number of RFID's you could index them:
"0F001CC96C"=1
"1G041CC94C"=2
etc.

You can also use all the functionality of MATLAB plots, such as with the plot() command. Have a look at the plot documentation for some other ideas. (https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/plot.html?searchHighlight=plot&s_tid=doc_srchtitle)
