Multiple Tags – Data Route
Multiple Tags Data Route Configuration
View the following video demonstrating multiple tag data route configuration and uses.
View the following steps to define event driven, data change, or continuous execution to trigger setting multiple tag values with defined values or values from other tags.
Step 1 – Configure Data Route
Start the Configure OAS application and select Configure-Data Route.
If prompted enter the Admin user and password defined in the security setup and select OK.
Step 2 – Define Route Execution
Enter a unique Route Name to identify the routing configuration.
Specify the Route Type.
- Event Driven: A Boolean Tag that transactions from False to True, True to False, or both will trigger the data route. An Integer Tag can also be used to Trigger the data route when its value changes and is not a value of 0.
- Continuous: The data route will execute continuously at the rate specified in seconds.
- Specific Time Of Day: The data route will occur once per day at the time specified.
- Destination Change: A change in value on a destination tag will trigger a write from the sources defined for that particular tag.
- Source Change: A change in value on a source tag will trigger a write to all destination tags with that tag as a source tag.
For Event Driven execution define the Trigger Tag property to a Boolean or Integer tag by browsing for a local or remote network tag.
If the Trigger Tag is a Boolean tag specify the Digital Triger Type to execute on a value change from False to True, True to False, or Both.
For Continuous execution the Route Rate to set the frequency of execution.
Specific Time of Day
For Time of Day execution set the Time of Day to execute the data route.
Step 3 – Define Source to Destinations
Select the Tags tab of the data route to setup each destination tag and the source value that will be written to the tag.
Select the ADD button to add a destination tag and variable to write to.
Browse for the destination tag and variable on the local or remote OAS Engine.
The source of the value to write can be a fixed value or dynamic value from another tag variable.
Define the Source Value and Data Type to write to the Destination.
Or enable Value from Tag and browse for the local or remote tag variable to use as the source value.
Optionally specify a Delay Time to wait after the execution is triggered to write the value to the tag.
Note: The Delay Time is the property to use to create Time On or Time Off resets using a Route Type of Destination Change.
Continue to define additional tags using the ADD button.
CSV Import / Export
Optionally use the CSV Export button to export the existing list to a CSV file, then modify with Excel, then save and close Excel to use the CSV Import button to import the modified list of tags.
Select the ADD GROUP button to add the route to the data route configuration.
The data route is now active and will execute based on the Route Type selected.
The data route can be disabled by unchecking the Route Active property under the Common tab or controlled dynamically with enabling the property Activate Route with Tag.
Step 4 – Save Configuration
Select the Save button on the toolbar at the top.
If this is the first time saving you will be prompted to make this the default configuration to load when the OAS Engine restarts.
This can be changed under Configure-Options-Default Files.
