This week’s symbol for InduSoft Web Studio is an indicator which shows the analog value of a tag, with the digital value floating/following to the left. If the HiLimit or LoLimit levels are breached, the limits will blink red and the diamond showing the level will turn solid red.
Range (if applicable): -9999 to 9999 (maybe more)
Description: Analog indicator with HiLimit and LoLimit indicators
Properties: TagName, Decimal, Min, Max, Label, Units
Notes: This indicator shows the analog value, with the digital value floating/following to the left. If the HiLimit or LoLimit levels are breached, the limits will blink red and the diamond showing the level will turn solid red.
Note: IMPORTANT. Because this uses Tag Properties for the Alarm limits, you need to enable the tag for Alarms. The easiest way to do this is via an alarm worksheet, but there are other ways. The values can be changed during runtime but the worksheet is used to just “enable” the alarm limits
Suggestion: Create a configuration screen (with security) that allows configuration of all of the set points. For example a Text object with Text I/O animation with Input Enabled, that uses the syntax: TagName->HiLimit to adjust the “Hi” alarm limit.
Ideas for improvement:
- Create in different sizes
- Create different colors
- Add alarm limit configurations
