Configuring CIULink

Configuring CIULink

CIULink on its own can be used as a viewer to observe outputs for various points in the system. If you have not run CIULink before, proceed through the following steps to ensure proper performance. After opening up the program and setting up the IP Address as explained above, the next step is to tell CIULink from which database files to get the correct module information. By selecting Tag Monitoring from the menu and choosing Enter Database File Names, the following window will appear:

You can browse for the correct database files for which you are working on; when you have found and selected the correct file, click the Add button and the full path for the file name will appear in the Current Database File Selection area of the window. Add all the appropriate database files for your system to the list to ensure that all points will be covered. If you have made an incorrect choice, just click and highlight the incorrect file in the Current Database File Selection area and choose Delete; this will remove the database from the CIULink monitoring. When you are satisfied with all your choices, choose Close.
