Setting Parameter Values


  • Read and understand the applicable material in this manual before changing or removing any citect.ini parameters.
  • Never change or remove any undocumented citect.ini parameters.
  • Before deleting sections of the citect.ini file, confirm that no necessary or undocumented parameters will be deleted.
  • Do not edit your configuration file while your project is running.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.

Note: Always seek the advice of Technical Support personnel for this product regarding undocumented features.

There are a number of methods to create or edit parameter values within CitectSCADA:

If you set (or change) parameters in the citect.ini file, you need to restart CitectSCADA before the new parameter settings are used. There are a few exceptions to this rule where citect.ini parameters are read at regular intervals and can be changed during runtime. Where this is the case, the parameter is documented accordingly.
