Description

The EGT Indicator block displays temperature measurements for engine exhaust gas temperature (EGT) in Celsius.

This block displays values using both:

  • A needle on a gauge. A major tick is (Maximum-Minimum)/1,000 degrees, a minor tick is (Maximum-Minimum)/200 degrees Celsius.

  • A numeric indicator. The operating range for the indicator goes from Minimum to Maximum degrees Celsius.

If the value of the signal is under Minimum, the needle displays 5 degrees under the Minimum value, the numeric display shows the Minimum value. If the value exceeds the Maximum value, the needle displays 5 degrees over the maximum tick, and the numeric displays the Maximum value.

Parameters

Connection

Select a 1-element signal to connect to the block.

To view the data from a signal, select a signal in the model. The signal appears in the Connection table. Select the option button next to the signal you want to display. Click Apply to connect the signal.

The table has a row for the signal connected to the block. If there are no signals selected in the model, or the block is not connected to any signals, the table is empty.

Minimum

Specify the minimum tick mark value.

Default value is 0.

Specify this number as a finite, real, double, scalar value.

The Minimum tick value must be less than the Maximum tick value.

Maximum

Specify the maximum tick mark value.

Default value is 1000.

Specify this number as a finite, real, double, scalar value.

The Minimum tick value must be greater than the  Maximum tick value.

Scale Colors

Specify ranges of color bands on the outside of the scale. Specify the minimum and maximum color range to display on the gauge.

Label

Name of connected signal.

  • Top

    Show label at the top of the block.

  • Bottom

    Show label at the bottom of the block.

  • Hide

    Do not show the label or instructional text when the block is not connected.
