Circular Gauge Widget
Copyright © 2018 EarthSoft, Inc • Modified: 23 Nov 2018
The EQuIS Live - Circular Gauge widget shows the latest real-time data retrieved from a selected series, as well as the minimum and maximum values it has captured. The widget will automatically update at set intervals (either user-specified, or based on DT_LOGGER.TRANSMIT_PERIOD_S).
To open the Widget Editor, select the More Options icon in the upper right corner of the widget to open the drop-down menu and then select the Edit menu option.
To add a logger series, make selections in the Gauge tab:
•Facilities – Select the facility for which the loggers should be chosen.
•Loggers – Select the logger to be tracked in the gauge.
•Series – Select the data series from the selected logger to display in the gauge.
•Refresh Time/Time Interval – Set the number and interval for the gauge to refresh (e.g., to get a 15-minute interval, set a Refresh Time of “15” and a Time Interval of “Minutes”, or set a Refresh Time of “900” and a Time Interval of “Seconds”)
The Options tab has the following parameters:
•Initial Scale Min (optional) – Set the minimum value for the gauge scale. If a value is recorded below the minimum value, the gauge scale will update automatically with that value.
•Initial Scale Max (optional) – Set the maximum value for the gauge scale. If a value is recorded above the maximum value, the gauge scale will update automatically with that value.
•Range Min – Set this value to show when the series goes below an expected threshold; defaults to DT_LOGGER_SERIES TYPICAL_MIN_VALUE.
•Range Max – Set this value to show when the series goes beyond an expected threshold; defaults to DT_LOGGER_SERIES TYPICAL_MAX_VALUE.
•Major Interval – Set the major intervals on the gauge; defaults to 10.
The Colors tab allows the user to select the colors for several of the gauge's following features:
•Primary – Select the colors for the Main Needle border and current value label.
•Secondary – Select various border colors.
•Scale – Select the color for the tick marks.
•Labels – Select the color for major tick values and other labels.
