Sun- and cloud gauge

Post by nowind » Sat 15 Feb 2020 11:05 am

What is that red area? Here it is between 200 and 380.

My sundial lack the orange area (between 170-180) which you can see here on Marks' dial. What is that?

And finally, I've tried several styles, but I can't find this style:

That is values over the current theoretical value

No idea! I only use the two areas, they must have overlapped for some reason (incorrect code/values somewhere)

It isn't included in the cut-down version I gauges.js I included in the weather gauges. We will need to use the full version of the steelseries gauges.js from github to get that gauge.

Thank you, Mark!

I'm curious what they represent? My red area goes from 0 to 180, and yours from 0-200. Why is that?

It just shades an area above the current calculated maximum value for irradiation, it indicates when you sensor is "over-reading" which it may well do if there are clouds around.

I had another look at the sun gauge code...

The Orange section starts at current calculated max value, and ends 10% above that.

Just to clarify versions?

I notice your page has a version 2.5.9++, not the current?? 2.7.3 which is the most recent mentioned on the board.

Does 2.7.3 contain all that's changed in your version or is it a one off.

Cheers.
