Strategy Controller

The Strategy Controller is an Event Based Engine that runs all the time SpecView is online in Runtime Mode.  The Engine watches for Value or Time based events to occur, and when triggered, these events can then execute a number of actions.

Some examples of the kinds of Events that can be defined:

  • When ProcessValue > HighAlarm
  • When DoorClosed
  • When a Barcode changes
  • At 8:00am on Mondays
  • Every 30 minutes

Some examples of the Actions that can be performed:

  • Download a setpoint
  • Copy a setpoint to another controller
  • Do some simple maths on values
  • Swap Screens
  • Run External programs to perform various activities, such as dial a pager
  • Download a recipe
  • Trigger a digital output

If the Strategy Controller Option has not been purchased, then only two Events may be defined - each of these may have as many actions as needed on the Events.

For full details of how the Strategy Controller works, see the Help or the Manual.
