Cycle Angle & Motion Study setup assistance

I'm trying to simulate a device but I only want the torque shown to activate when the crank is at a certain position in the rotation. I would like to follow the pattern shown below. In the 2nd image you can see where I tried to accomplish this by using the "Segments" feature to input the torque values I wanted at the angles I want. My big question is where it says "Cycle Angle" what angle is 0? Where does it start? And how could I make it so that the cycle angles are dependent on the cranks angle position?

Here is the applied torque.
