Many users are familiar with the Average Data Report and Calibration Detail report, but there is a multitude of different reports to help you understand your system and your data. The following are a few reports useful to every system.
This report will show a log of digital line changes over a given time. Troubleshooting problems with your system is made significantly easier through the use of this report, as it shows the exact second that a digital line was triggered. Trying to figure out what triggered a specific alarm? Take a look at the Input Line History Report at the exact moment the alarm triggered to get an idea of what happened. Did a calibration start outside of its normally scheduled time? Check the report to see if it was started manually or if logic within the controller initiated the cal.
The Exception Events Report is similar to an Exceedance Events or Downtime Events Report, except that it shows the duration that various data masks have been applied on a parameter. The report is able to show periods marked Missing, Exceedance, Out of Control, Invalid, Suspect, Startup, or Shutdown including the start and end time, duration, and max value during the period. If your system is configured to apply the Startup mask on a parameter, this report can be used to show durations of startups. Similarly, the report could be used to show the amount of time a parameter was Out of Control for a quarter.
