OPC Client for KB
A Quiet Workhorse Monitoring Alarm System Attribute to a Master Alarm Database Utilizing the OPC DA Interface
In the LogMate® product suite, the Master Alarm Database is known as the Alarm Knowledge Base (KB) for its ability to house more than alarm system parameters. After initial configuration, OPC Client for KB runs in the background monitoring changes to OPC attributes and then reflects those changes in the Alarm KB based on an attribute mapping file. This means after the initial configuration, OPC Client for KB eliminates the need for human interaction to maintain an up-to-date Alarm KB database.
