This option is used to display a variable on the workspace. In order to display a new variable:
Go to Workspace and click on New.
When a gauge is selected, the system will ask for a variable to display. The variable selected can be changed easily by clicking on Variable, appearing then the following window.
Once the variable to display has been selected, the way it is shown in the interface is also configurable. Here are some of the different gauge types that can be chosen.
Each gauge type can be configured in its panel and some parameters can be changed:
Gauge name. It can be changed by typing a new one. (Orange)
Selected Veronte. The dropdown menu allows to select another linked Veronte unit. (Blue)
If Selected Veronte is the option taken, the gauge will display the information corresponding to the autopilot which has been clicked on the Side Panel.
Variable units and decimals. (Red)
Changing the unit of measure of the variable does not imply that the selected Veronte will gather the corresponding data in the selected unit. It only converts the unit.
Displayed variable. (Green)
Gauge type, dimensions and position. (Black)
Gauge: Allows the user to change the gauge type (Bar, Label, Radial…)
Ranges: Allows the user to define an interval by clicking on the ‘+’ button. For this interval several customizations can be made:
Colour: Change the color of the interval which will be shown graphically in the gauge (does not apply to graph gauges)
Alarm: By clicking the bell icon an alarm can be created. For more information about alarm customization please refer to ‘Alarm Creation’ section.
Text: Add a text to be displayed (only in the gauge types that allow this addition of text)
One of the options that appear for all the kind of gauges is the customization of the colour according to the value of the variable shown.
Select the option Range and a new window will be displayed.
In the new window, the user can create different ranges, each one having a certain colour and an associated alarm of the ones configured on Pipe Configuration-Preferences-General-Alert_Audioclips.
Click on the Alarm icon and configure it.
Gauge – Range
In the case of displaying a boolean on the workspace (GNSS Navigation Down for example), in the Range menu will appear automatically the two states, each one with a colour (green, red), and also with the possibility of selecting an audio clip for each one of them.
When displaying a chart, it is useful to overlap with transparencies two or more in the same figure to observe their evolution. To do that, Pipe provides the Change Group option. Right clicking on the graph and selecting this item displays a window where the group name can be introduced. If two charts are in the same group, their relative position will be kept unchanged (they will move together).
Variable – Group
The option highlighted in red is the option to lock the chart. If all the elements of the group are marked they will move together, if one is not marked it could be moved with respect to the other group elements.
