KepWare - Write Tag Value if no connectivity

 Hello, We're currently using KepServer for all of our machine and database communication, paired mostly with Mitsubishi Q series PLC.

 

I'm more familiar with the Kepware functionality than I am with the PLC ladder logic.

Is it possible for me to continuously write a tag to an M bit on a machine from Kepware, and in the instance that say the server running Kepware is restarted, that tag value would return false? I think it may be more on the PLC logic side, but I was wondering if it'd be possible to use a linked tag that's always on, and link it to an M bit, turning that M bit on, and have the plc logic to try and turn it off. Is there a better method to achieve what I'm thinking in my head?

Hello A,

 

It sounds like you want to link a value based on the Device's connectivity status. If this is the case, you could use the AdvancedTags plug in to link on a trigger. Bad quality of a tag could be the link trigger or a Boolean true, for example. The built in System_Error tag would be another great tag to use as a trigger.

 

Please take a look at the following articles:
