Feature Description
A The tabs at the top of the window select which device to view. Each tab corresponds to a different "prefix" in Configuration.
B The kiln, run, and package number. These values are obtained via DDE and cannot be edited.
C The total number of boards in each moisture content level for the current run. These values are updated once per second, or as described by *_chart_redraw_ms in Configuration.
D Summary info for the run. This shows the total number of boards, the average moisture content, and the standard deviation.
E A chart showing the moisture level of boards for both the run and the package. The colours in the chart correspond to the colours used in section C and F. The chart is updated once per second, or as described by *_chart_redraw_ms in Configuration.
F Similar to C, but for the current package.
G Similar to D, but for the current package.

Warning Messages

Boards

At regular intervals (as determined by the configuration value *_chart_redraw_ms), GMM can be configured to check that a package doesn't contain too many boards. When enabled, once a pre-determined minimum threshold is met, a popup message similar to this one is shown:

warning_number_of_boards.png

The popup can be toggled on/off, the minimum threshold can be set to a specific value, and the length of time between popups can also be explicitly set.
