Define custom events to trigger automated actions
OPC Triggers enable automated actions based on user-defined events. Use this functionality to enable immediate action based on abnormal situations. Automated actions include automatic reconnections or even failovers (when using redundancy). OPC Expert also notifies users by email, sound or by running custom batch files or scripts.
Trigger events based on multiple criteria. Start options include detecting when item qualities are bad (or even uncertain), or when OPC communication stops due to a network or software failure. Other options include detecting when item values reach a pre-determined level, do not change within a given time period or when a value does change.
Take multiple automated actions when OPC Expert detects an event.
