Multi-Needle Sailing Stopwatch

This model shows how to use the Stop Watch block to simulate a typical sailing stopwatch. The Stop Watch block displays three needles that mark simulation time simultaneously on individual angular scales:

  • The large needle spans 1 minute.

  • The left small needle spans 1 second.

  • The right small needle spans 15 minutes.

To open this example, enter gauges_stopwatch in the MATLAB® Command Window. Run the simulation and watch how the three needles move.
