Power Tools Using System Sentry Device Points

You can integrate System Sentry device points with several CIMPLICITY power tools to create System Sentry power tools. You can:

  • Create log files to develop baseline data and review a performance history.
  • Configure alarms to warn you before a bottleneck occurs.
  • Configure pagers to warn you, even when you are not near the system, before a bottleneck occurs.
Note: You can also configure objects on a CimEdit/CimView screen using a System Sentry device point. However, you can also use points by address. In order to improve the performance, invalid points return a value of zero; they are not marked as invalid.
