Totalizers on version 6 of 800xA.
I am looking at using Calculation engine on 800xA to do totalizers.
Someone mentioned that it is possible to use the engine to do totalizers on version 6 of 800xA.
There is a function called calculation engine which is available on the HMI level and can be used to perform calculations and perhaps totalizers. The only additional thing would be the license. This is only available on Version 6 of 800xA.
Please advise if there is anyone who used it before and can perhaps assist in configuring totalizers on this level.
It's possible. But it's a bad idea.
If no totaliser is available on the instrument, try to run totalisers in the PLC where the measurement is made. The PLC can detect signal errors and off conditions more easily and has a faster and predictable scan rate.
Calculated totalisers using calculations service or simar will be MUCH less accurate.
