How to reverse the logic of a Digital value in PLSCADA?

Causes and Fixes

To reverse the logic of a digital value in PL SCADA, use a NOT in front of the Variable Tag in the expression box where the tag name is used.

The following capture is an example of a Genie utilizing reversed logic. In this case, the graphic symbol will be hidden as long as the substituted variable tag is equal to one.
