A batch archive normally is used in plants, where no cyclic production exists. I.e. there are no strictly defined time flows in the production. As an example we can take a bottling plant (different products, different production quantities and therefore times).
Compared to a usual archive a batch archive has two differences:
Defined start and stop time of the archive (Generally: not cyclic)
Defined batch name
We create a batch archive, which records the values of our temperature sensors for certain production cycles. The name of the batch is given by the variable Batch name.
So zenon remembers the last value of this variable even if the Runtime is closed.
