Many systems (should) link the appropriate Alarm Points (Low, Low-Low, High, High-High, etc.) operators configure within the HMI/SCADA software (Geo SCADA) to the registers within the controller (PLC).
We have a point with a value between 0-100
These limits would then be linked, bi-directionally, to the appropriate registers in the controller. Modbus in this example.
Point.HighLmtStd <> Controller.400100
In the interim we have created a logic script to move the Geo SCADA config values to the created analog output points. This is a single direction and works for "simple" systems, but others with local HMI that allows for these and even some dynamic set point algorithms (avg. deviations...) are not connectable in these manner.
The unfortunate reality is that this significantly increases the Point usage. Perhaps give us a "freebie" that can link within the Advanced drivers point config. That would definitely be appreciated!
