There is an open protocol for the printout of the Chronologic Event List. The print of the Chronologic Event List can be selected as an alternative to the printout of the Alarm Information List. If the current list printer is not available the standard printer of the print manager is used. Online-printing requires a printer compatible for line-oriented output. Be aware of this when installing a printer.

The configuration of the logging is done in the project properties under Alarm/CEL list.

The individual parts are separated by %%. The separation marking must be used only once for the list and the base part.
