Updating Tag Database

by | Jun 4, 2018 | FAQ General-Group |

The tag database determines what variables or memory registers are passed up to GRIDview from GRIDlink. It is configured by an Administrator manually (See instruction). This article describes the data flow process.

tagDb

Device / Tags

The tag database is loaded through a csv file and the name is found in the first record. See below.

For efficiency only the tags for user interface and datalogging are included. Any tag not included the .csv upload will be not visible to the user.

The control logic running in the GRIDlink (Control Program or Open ADR) is unaffected by whether or not the tag is visible in GRIDview.

Tags that are not used by GRIDview should be avoided.

In order to distinguish differences between .csv file uploads, a unique name is used in the first record.
