Alarm logger printer activation/deactivation
does anyone know is there any way to implement a function that gives the operator possibility to turn on/off the alarm logger (matrix printer) on process graphics by faceplate or something else..? (System 800xA v5.1 rev D)

You can have a digital output driving the relay that controls the power supply to printer.
Reference this Digital output on a faceplate or graphics to control the printer.
Sounds too much of work? Hold on, its not so difficult. Just use Alarm logger Manager in application bar and you can control the printing by enable/disable printing.
