Hello all - I am implementing an Opto22 solution to the control of an asphalt plant. Many states/countries have laws that require the physical printing of data periodically (say every 5 minutes or so). I am a fairly new Opto user and am having trouble finding a good solution to this problem. The best I have come up with thus far is:
1) Use an Alarm Point and set it to log via printer. The problem with this is that I only get one piece of data to print (the Tag causing the alarm). I need to print maybe 10-15 pieces of data.
2) Historic Data Log - I haven't tried this yet, but it looks like I can configure an Historic Data Log to hold the data I need....but how would I get it to print periodically - without operator intervention?
(I should also mention that the periodicity of the log print is operator controlled....i.e. - it will be entered into PACDisplay by the operator).
thanks in advance for any help!
