Tags are used to identify the end points in the infrastructure you are using CitectSCADA to monitor and control. The name you give to a tag becomes a label for a register address, allowing it to be intuitively applied across graphics pages and in alarm notifications.

Three tag types are included in a project's Tags folder in Citect Explorer:

Variable tags

used to label register addresses

See Tagging Process Variables

Trend tags

used to label tags for data trending

See Trending Data

SPC tags

used to label tags according to Statistical Process Control principles

See SPC Tags

Selecting one of these tag types in Citect Explorer calls up the associated configuration dialog in Project Editor.
