**_I have setup the RTU to trend pulse counts every 15mins. One record logs the change and the other logs the current value.The RTU creates files which I can retrieve using E Configurator. In CS I have setup the Trend points and they only seem to update when I manually retrieve them by right clicking on the RTU, where do I set up the file uplad Frequency ?_**
dmercer: I've never used these before, but the help doc goves you this information at:
Driver Reference DNP3 SCADAPack E Driver Configuring DNP3 SCADAPack E Trend Sampler Functionality Example Configuration
The outstation should have SCADAPack Tab. In that tab under Trend Retrieval you can set when CS will retieve the tend data from the RTU.
bevanweiss: I would not recommend using Trend Points. They are incredibly specific to SCADAPack RTUs, and aren't really 'standard' in any means.
If you want a trend, you can get the same by using normal DNP3 points which are historised.
If you have the pulse counter feeding a DNP3 Counter point (as happens by default) then you just configure a Class against the counter, and a deadband for the events to be generated. When ClearSCADA does a poll then it will retrieve the DNP3 event records for the Counter point, and you'll have your trend available...
