    I'm using a dvp32es2 plc to monitor machine usage in our factory. The PLC is reading a current trasformer to determine when the machine is switched on. However, I would like to be able to log this info as well. At least on an hourly or dialy basis. I'm not sure if there is a way to automatically log data with the PLC or if I hve to sav e the values to an icreading array of registers?

    you could capture it in a circulat buffer, however, I'm sure you'll want to gain access to that info. Do you have any HMIs? Historians are a common feature HMI software. Optionally you could pull it out over your comm port with Qlink or similar and log it in a database.

    Yes, i'm using an HMI to display the data? So would I just link the HMI historian to the data register that keeps changing and the rest will follow?
