Collection Period This is how often Profile should connect to the RTU to collect data. It should match the data storage interval unless your RTU has archive registers. E.g. connect daily and gather 24 hours worth of data.
Deadband This is the number of seconds that Profile will wait after the hour before collecting process data. This is useful for giving SCADA a period of time to collect the data it needs.
Collection Time Per RTU This is the maximum amount of time that will be spent on each RTU.
No of Collection Processes This is the number of data collection methods that can be used to simultaneously collect data from the RTUs.Consult Ambrit before setting this value to ensure your settings are optimized for your system.
Once Data Collection Has Completed Profile will collect data every hour or day. Once it has collected that periods data it will stop. To make it continue checking for new alarms, batches, proves or reports, click the ‘Keep Checking for Alarms, Events and Reports’ radio button.
Collect Data Data can be collected once per period, repeatedly or never.
Data Storage Interval The Data Storage Interval field defines how much data should be stored for the RTU. The data collection period is set for the entire server and can be 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours, 8 hours, 12 hours, or daily. WARNING! This will affect how the data is stored in Profile so all existing historical data for all RTUs will be cleared from the database.
