Go to the Real-time application and select Designer in the main menu.

You will now see a pop-up where you need to define the data that you wish the gauge to display.

Field explanation:

  1. DIAP: Select the DIAP that you wish to use.
  2. PLC: Choose PLC or sensor.
  3. Tag: Choose the tag or sensor that you would like to visualize data from.
  4. Offset: The information here is defined during creation of the tag/sensor.
  5. Multiplier: The information here is defined during creation of the tag/sensor.
  6. Min. value: Defines the minimum value of the gauge.
  7. Max. value: Defines the maximum value of the Gauge.
  8. Lower RED value: When the value comes near the lower red value entered here, the gauge will turn red (the field can be empty).

How to edit a gauge

Click the cogwheel to edit the gauge.

You will now be able to edit all values.

The CPU has moved below 5 and is consequently red.
