5.12        Point Detail Display

The Point Detail Display provides a full page Graphic for any tag in the system. It allows users view all details of every Tag in the system, including its current value and all the "Tag Fields" associated with the Tag or Block:Parameter.  Tag Fields include Alarm Limits, Hi and Lo Span, Address, other configuration data and run-time statuses.   Some Tag Fields can be modified on-line, for example the Alarm Limits.  When the SCADA Node restarts or is downloaded, the Tag Fields will revert to their values stored on the Project Node (the Configuration Database).

There are actually three Point Detail Displays:

·         Analog Point Detail Display

·         Digital Point Detail Display (i.e. Discrete)

·         Text Point Detail Display

WebAccess automatically calls the appropriate Point Detail based on the Block:Parameter's or Tag's data type (e.g. Analog, Discrete or Text).

The point detail guarantees that every Tag can be viewed from a graphic display.

The Point Detail Displays are pre-built template displays supplied with Web Access. These displays can be customized by engineers and technicians using DRAW.  How your Point Detail Display appears, its Colors, Fonts, etc. may vary based on how (or if) the Analog.Bxx, Digital.Bxx and Text.Bxx (and associated *.dxx) on your system are modified.

The Point Detail Display can be called from the Block Detail Display as part of the Display Hierarchy.

The Point Detail can be called up from any graphic by:
