I have compared/tested all my analog points to setpoint variables which will set and clear alarm variables in my strategy. Having configured them using the logical “test” functions the alarms are inherently non-latching. Some of these alarm variables are used as interlocks which will affect certain digital outputs in our system. Now looking back on this I can see us having issues with some alarm variables toggling on/off when they are at the setpoint. A simple delay-on command that could be used with a variable would be very helpful in this instance allowing the strategy to continue moving through the chart while the delay-on runs.
Does anyone have recommendations as to how to accomplish this delay? The goal is to set the alarm variable true if the test/comparison is positive but only after the delay.
