  • No GC (Default)
  • Archive 1-25

Archive Object

Click  to select or create an Archive Limits. See the Archive Limits section for more details.

Map Type

Select the option to use for interpreting data in archive records.

  • ACM Internal Map (Default)
  • User Defined Map
  • Both Maps

Map

Click  to select or create the Modbus History Map Object assigned to this archive.  See the Modbus History Map section for more details.

Include Unmapped Fields

Default = Not selected. Select to include unmapped archive fields in the output record.

Concatenate string registers with duplicate identifiers

Default = Not selected. Select to concatenate duplicate string registers into one field.

Text Report Interval

Select the desired Interval relating to the Schedule object assigned on the Connection tab. Text Report collections will occur at a frequency based on the configuration of this interval.

Collect Batch

Default = Not selected. Select to include Batch Report collection on schedule poll.

Batch Archive

Click  to select or create an Archive Limits. See the Archive Limits section for more details.

Prove Archive

Click  to select or create an Archive Limits. See the Archive Limits section for more details.

Configuration Interval

Select the desired Interval relating to the Schedule object assigned on the Connection tab. Configuration will clear out at a frequency based on the configuration of this interval. This will cause the next data collection requiring this data to collect new configuration from the rtu.

Use Old Archive Method

Default = Not selected. Select to use the older, slower archive retrieval method which requires writing the desired archive record index before retrieving the record.

Publish Raw Data

Default = Not selected. Select to always publish raw archive records in addition to selected archive type.

Log Publish Data

Default = Selected. Select to log register and value information for data sent to publisher.

Scale Volume Totalizers

Default = Not selected. Select to scale gross and net volume totalizer values using the number of decimal places configured in the OMNI.

Scale Mass Totalizers

Default = Not selected. Select to scale mass totalizer values using the number of decimal places configured in the OMNI.

Note

The OMNI stores totalizer values (counts/pulses). Users can configure an “implied decimal” place of 1, 10, or 100. When ACM retrieves the history records it can store the counts/pluses as is (options to scale disabled), or divide the counts/pulses by the configured decimal place (options to scale enabled).


Include record index number

Default = Not selected. 

Include OMNI revision number

Default = Not selected. 

Include RTU clock date and time

Default = Not selected. 

Prevent DP and Pulse value conflicts

Default = Not selected. Select to make ACM use the DP or Pulse value appropriately when publishing to outputs like CFX and PGAS. Both values will be in the output record, but the appropriate value for use will be identified based on the type of meter. This is only necessary if the OMNI archive is configured to contain both the DP and Pulse registers.

Skip report timestamp check

Default = Not selected. Some older versions of OMNI firmware don't include the registers that contain the timestamps of reports. This can cause an error during report collection. Check this option to make ACM skip the timestamp check.

Only combine Proves with matching timestamps

Default = Not selected. When prove records are split across multiple archives, ACM will retrieve records at the same index from the configured archives, and combine the records into one prove record. Check this option to only archive records combined when they have matching timestamps.
