Download this Symbol for InduSoft Web Studio

Name: Slider01.5.sym

Range: 0 to 999

Properties: TagName, Max, Min, Label and UnitChar

Description: This symbol improves on the existing Slider01 design by adding a configurable label at the top and allows you to choose which character to display as the units. Previously the Slider01 symbol was fixed at “%” for the units. Now you can use any single character for the units.

Notes:

  1. Use any single character for the unit display. For example use “F” for Fahrenheit, or even display the degree symbol “°” by holding down alt and typing 0176 on your number keypad. If you want to hide the units, just put a space inside of the quotes like this “ “.

Ideas for improvement:

  1. Add other colors
  2. Add the ability to enable/disable a set point indicator
  3. Add alarm set point indicators
  4. Add support for larger numbers and negative numbers

Unzip and copy the .sym file into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\InduSoft Web Studio v7.1\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “Sliders”.
