Water Tank Levels from ThingSpeak

Post by BeaumarisWX »

Hi Mark,
I have been developing a wifi / Solar Powered Water Tank Monitor for a while now (on prototype 3 they upload to ThingSpeak) :oops: :-(
We do not have Mains Water here in Beaumaris, So reliant on the Heavens and having to manage multiple Water Tanks.
i.e If one too Low, pump up, if another too high pump down etc.

I have over time input all this data into MySql and so on, and although that works well and have many outputs / displays working well, I have been trying to display a quick easy overall view of the tanks. I decided to try your SteelSeries Gauges and although I have been able to obtain the data from ThingSpeak, I have not been able to display the Radial Gauges in page as desired. Nor am I sure I have the best way to depict them either. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

A rough trial, using iFrame inclusion on this page.
Test Complete Final Version link below :

Kind Regards,
Tony

I think they are probably the best selection, and the LED type gives you the ability to colour code as you have done. The none LED version is clearer imo, but you lose the colour coding.

Hi Mark,

Got that all running in new page layout now : https://beaumaris-weather.com/BWX/water ... ssteel.php

One thing I do is convert the Tank Level % to Litres in Tank (All Tanks are 24,000 Litres).

That all works fine and display that LinearBargraph as well, however although I set the maxValue: 24000, it displays 25000 Max.

Is it possible to :
1: Fix that to 24,000 Max (.ie. it currently major steps at 5000 should be 4000).
2: Is it at all possible to display the Tick Values as say 4K , 8K , 24K vs 4000 , 8000 , 24000 etc.).
As per example below:

Kindest Regards,

Set your min/max scale values, and add the parameter...

Code: Select all

niceScale: false
