Der so genannter „Tagesstundenzähler“ zeigt die Anzahl der Stunden der reinen Bereitung nach dem letzten Rücksetzen.
This is a specific part of the "system uptime", i.e. the "Angaben zu den Betriebs- und Bereitungsstunden".

Notes to answerer
Asker: Except that in this case it isn't actually linked to daylight (or Tag), the system could be running (i.e. producing, as opposed to merely on) at any time of the day or night. It starts and stops automatically. This option counts the hours it is actually running/producing.
