Using CitectSCADA > Tagging Process Variables > Tag Naming > Area

The Area section identifies a plant area, number, or name. If you use a prefix that identifies tags within a particular area, you can easily duplicate CitectSCADA functions within the area. For example, if you have three boilers with the same controls on each boiler, you can configure the tags for boiler number one, and copy the tags to boilers two and three. You then only need to change the area section in the tag names to the area of the second and third boiler. The remainder of the tags remain unchanged, for example:

Boiler 1

Boiler 2

Boiler 3




If you do not need this facility, you can omit the Area section of the Tag Name to reduce the number of characters in the tag.
