The Reaction Matrices are the most sophisticated way to deal with stati.

Here single stati can be evaluated and cause alarms. Basically a status can be treated like a value. As with a value it is also possible with a status to cause certain actions.

As for example:

Generate alarm

Generate entry in CEL

Execute function


Color change


If a value becomes invalid, it gets the status I-BIT. For example when the driver loses the connection to the PLC.

It is possible to create a Reaction Matrix, which causes an alarm, as soon as the value becomes invalid (I-BIT). Lateron there is the possibility to evaluate these alarms.
