How often the PwrModbus driver checks for new waveforms in PowerSCADA Expert

Issue
Depending on the volume of waveforms, the user may want to change the frequency of uploading waveforms for better performance.

Note: This applies to PM, CM, and Sepam

Product Line
PowerSCADA Expert 8.2, PSE 8.2 (applies to v7.4 and newer)

Environment
Computer Setup Editor (INI parameter)

Cause
Contolling the frequency of waveform uploading in PSE.

Resolution
*Warning: This article contains information about editing the INI file. Improper changes can damage the system performance. Always backup the INI file before making any changes.*

The parameter WaveformCheckTime defines the time the driver will wait between checking for new waveforms.

Parameter type: seconds
Default value: 30


This parameter has to be added in INI file.  In the example below the system checks for waveforms every 60 seconds:

[SEPAM40.MYCLUSTER.PORT_1.DEVICE_A]
WaveformCheckTime 60
