Send messages beetween connected operators
I am working for a factory, they ask me this feature :
Operators need to send messages to each others in the Operator Workplace.
Do you know a built-in feature to do this ?
Thank you for your help.
I think Live chat is not implemented in 800xA yet (correct me if I'm wrong).
I can imagine solution within one PG2 graphic where each operator has string DEW input field for receiving messages from other operators.
String variables can be defined inside PLC or in 800xA in General Property aspect.
Each message entry shall be recorded by Audit Trail in the event database.
So it is possible to create filtered Event lists to display just operator messages.
Operator can be alerted about incoming message by Alarm band at Operator workplace top part , configured like showing number of messages from other operators.
