This week, we have a collection of odometer style meters. This style of highly-legible meter is perfect for use in smartgrid or smart metering applications, or in digital signage applications.
Name: Odometer_3Digit.sym, Odometer_4Digit.sym, Odometer_5Digit.sym
Custom Properties: TagName,
Range: 0 to 999, 0 to 9999, 0 to 99999
Description: This symbol set provides 3 different “odometer” style meters.
- These symbols were created primarily for use on a PC running on a desktop or server operating system, but with some slight modifications, can be made to look great on Embedded Operating Systems. You will should have “Enable Enhanced Graphics” turned on in the Project-Viewer settings.
- These are made of 100% native InduSoft Web Studio object, no pictures.
- These symbols display an integer. There is no range checking or limiting.
- They do display leading zeros.
Ideas for improvement:
- Add more colors
- Make different sizes.
- Add a label
Unzip and copy the .sym files 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 “Meters”.
