Send Controls to an IED
Testing control operation is done from the Advanced Client. All output/error information will be in the Output/Error List window. Select, Operate, and Cancel are all available from the right click context menu and the toolbar menu.
Highlighting a control will activate Select, Operate, and Cancel. Select is based on the ‘ctrlModel’ parameter and if select is required to operate the control.
Choosing Select, Operate, or Cancel will bring up the following dialog of what will be written to the server in order to Select, Operate, or Cancel the control.
Note: The exact same parameters must be entered for Select/Operate/Control in order to successfully work the control.
Note: In the case of Select before Operate non enhanced the Select command will do a read of the ‘SBO’ node which is all that is required to put the control in the selected state.
Tip: If Select is required by ‘ctlModel’ make sure ‘sboTimeout’ is a non zero value. ‘sboTimeout’ controls how long the control will stay in the selected state waiting for the operate or cancel command.
