Determines whether CitectSCADA periodically checks the communication connection to your primary I/O devices. If you set this parameter to 1, CitectSCADA will check the Primary devices every watch time (as specified by the WatchTime parameter of the device driver). If you set this parameter to 0, you will not be notified of a communication error until a read to the device is attempted.
Note: If you disable periodic checking, and no read activity is occurring, you will not receive a hardware error if the primary I/O device becomes inoperative.
