Display Regions (Purple)

Letter Name Description
A Last Update The status page automatically updates and this time indicates the last update time. If the number is gray it indicates communication between the browser and LinkMeter is working, and the time is the last time LinkMeter received data from HeaterMeter. If the time is in red, it indicates communication to LinkMeter has failed and the time is the time of the last connection attempt. LinkMeter runs on UTC so the time displayed here is adjusted for your local time. Hovering your mouse over the time will display the full date.
B Lid Open If HeaterMeter is in lid open detect mode, the duration remaining is displayed here. Click to toggle lid open mode.
C Graph Temperature This axis is for the temperature of probes degrees.
D Graph Fan Speed This axis is the fan speed percent.
E PID Output % The current PID output percent is indicated by the size of the bar and the label. There may also be a lighter blue bar inside of the main bar indicating the current blower speed, if max fan speed isn't 100%. The exponential moving average of the fan speed is displayed as a translucent rectangle "pip" at the correct percentage
F RF Status If a probe is of type RF Wireless, the status of the remote connection is indicated in this area. Mouse over the connection icon for more information
G Degrees Per Hour If a probe has more than one hour's worth of data, and the current temperature is at least 1 degree higher than it was an hour ago, the number of degrees per hour is indicated here. If the temperature is below the high alarm point, duration remaining until that temperature is reached is also shown.
X Not Shown Orange regions in the upper graph indicate periods where the system was in lid open mode
