Solar gauge legend -aka 'what do the coloured wedges mean'

Postby gjr80 » Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:50 am


Just trying to sort out some behavioural issues with weeWX when driving the SteelSeries Gauges. I was wondering what the different coloured 'wedges' on the solar gauge background mean? I found a post that covered the other gauges but it was pre-solar and UV. I know the triangle marker on the border indicates that days max solar radiation. When I look at the Wilmslow gauges page I see three coloured 'wedges', one edge sits on the current theoretical max solar rad value but I can't work out the others. Needless to say I am not getting a similar display and as far as I can tell I am feeding the gauges correctly.

I may have 'customised' my guage a little.

First sector on mine is from 'Sun shine' threshold to current theoretical max. So if you are in this area the light should be on and your software recording 'sunshine hours'.

Second sector on mine (may not be present on yours?) is from theoretical max to max + 10% - supposed to represent over bright sun readings

Third sector is from +10% and up a bit.
