QDB is used for third party device configuartion and DCS logics are build in Control Module(CM): Method for configuring the data transfer: · Consider the configured Flag with name “OPD” in a CM called “TEST”. · Now create a QDB point. · The channel for this point is a modbus channel with port type as LANVendor without any Port name. · The controller for this point is a modbus controller where we can leave the IP address as blank. · Now we need to enter the CM name and the function block and the parameter name in the PV Source Address of the point as shown in the attachment. · Now once we download the QDB channel, controller & points, the PV of the point will be following the CM Flaga value
