Application for Web-Thermograph:

Mercury thermometer


The value measured by the Web-Thermograph / Web-Thermo-Hygrograph can be easily visualized on a Web page using JavaScript and a few images. By incorporating the Web-Thermograph applet you ensure continuous updating of the measured value display.

Using the following copy & paste example you can display a temperature value measured by your Web-Thermograph on a Web page in the form of a mercury thermometer.


You have already supplied your Web-Thermograph

  • with power,
  • connected it to your network,
  • assigned it an IP address - which with WuTility is no problem.

1. Incorporate JavaScript into the Web page
Copy the JavaScript (shown in blue) from the following example into the <head> area of your Web page.

					<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
					document.write("<a href=’javascript:showgrad();’><img
					border=’0’ src=’Thermometer.gif’ style=’position:absolute; top:10px; left:10px’>");
					var thermometer = new multipic(301,"Thermometer","gif",91,100,50,"showgrad");
					var grad;
					function multipic(id, img_name, img_ext, img_count, ypos, xpos, link)
						this.multipics = new Array( img_count );
						this.multipic_count = img_count;
						this.multipic_id = id; // class variables
						for (i=0; i<img_count; i++)
							this.multipics[i] = new Image();
							this.multipics[i].src = img_name+i+’.’+img_ext;
						this.Set = picSet; // class method
						if (link == "nolink")
							document.write("<img id=’"+this.multipic_id+"’
							src="+this.multipics[0].src+" border=0>");
							document.write("<a href=’javascript:" + link + "("
							+ id + ");’><img id=’"+this.multipic_id+"’
							src="+this.multipics[0].src+" border=0></a>");
					function showgrad()
						alert("Aktueller Wert: "+grad+"°");
					function picSet(iCount)
						for (i=0; i<this.multipic_count; i++)
								document.getElementById(this.multipic_id).src = this.multipics[i].src;
					function sensorChanged( iDevice, iSensor, iVal )
						if (iSensor==0)
							grad = iVal;
2. Incorporate applet into Web page
  • Copy the applet data (shown in green) into the <body> area of your Web page.
  • Insert the IP address of your Web-Thermograph.

					<applet name="Analog" archive="A.jar" code="A.class" codebase="" height="0" width="0" mayscript>
						<param name="device" value="0">
						<param name="showerrors" value="off">
						<param name="sensorpolling" value="on">
						<param name="pollingrate" value="1000">
3. Download and save images
  • Now all you need is the images associated with the display object, which we have provided here for downloading: .zip (approx. 232 kB). Please place the images in the directory in which the Web page with the JavaScript and applet data are located.
