The Gauge Chart tab of the Command Center offers several configuration tools while opening a gauge chart.

Gauge charts show the most recent data point relative to a pre-set scale to offer a quick view of real-time data.


Fields

Description

Data Source

Drop-down menu to select the sensor source data for the new Gauge Chart.

Note: By default, Info360 shows the first 1000 sensor listing. To show search results beyond the first 1000, enter a keyword and then click the search icon (indicated by the red search icon ).

Threshold

The two boxes form the limits of the desired or expected data range for the sensor. In the new Gauge Chart, this range will be shown in green with red area extending ±50% of the threshold range.

If the values are left blank, then Info360 will assign a default range based on the data with no red-shaded boundaries.

Chart Type

Drop-down menu to select one of the three following Gauge Chart Types:

  • Circular Gauge - Shows the range of values spread around a circle with a central pin that points to the current value (similar to a classic speedometer in an automobile). When sensor data represents a setting (“on” or “off”), then gauge will default to a bi-color on/off indicator.
  • Linear Gauge - Shows the range of values in a linear bar with a blue diamond that indicates the current reading. Linear Gauges can be oriented either Horizontal or Vertical and the bar width can also be adjusted.
  • Bar Gauge - Shows a circular bar that is filled to current sensor reading relative to the Threshold values. Unlike the other Gauge Chart Styles, the Bar Gauge displays the current sensor reading on the chart rather than a reference range of values.
  • Text Gauge - Shows sensor reading information as text. The text color coding is based on the threshold provided. If the value meets the range of threshold you provided, the text will appear in green, otherwise it will appear in red.

Color Selection Tool

The Color Selection Tool offers a convenient way to select a custom color.

Description

Brightness and Saturation Selection

The large left box with a movable circle selector shows the 2-D spectrum of Brightness (vertical) and Saturation (horizontal). The circle can be dragged anywhere within the box to select the brightness and saturation.

Color Selection Spectrum

The middle vertical box with slide-able arrow selector shows the spectrum of available colors. A new color can be selected by dragging the arrows anywhere on the spectrum. Other fields in the window will populated automatically with the corresponding color.

Color Selection Indicator

The upper right two color boxes show the currently selected color (left) and the previous color (right).

RGB Numeric Color Control

The Red, Green, Blue components [0 to 255] of the color are shown in the right RGB boxes. Each value can be adjusted by clicking on the vertical arrows () and dragging up or down with the cursor.

Color ID

The Color ID field is auto-populated in the # box toward the bottom right. This can be used to quickly reproduce specific colors. Simply copy and paste any Color ID in the box the press Enter.

Confirm Color

Select  to confirm your color selection and close the window.

Gauge Chart Example

The following example shows a linear, circular, and bar gauge chart that represent a recent reading of 75.616 psi for a sensor. This gives a quick view of this data reading relative to a pre-set scale of 10 and 100 psi.
