What is "Equipment" in Citect SCADA

In Citect SCADA, the term "equipment" is used to describe an object-oriented architecture within a project that can be used to reference the machinery or processes being monitored. Equipment definitions create logical groupings that allow you to organize your project using a hierarchical design. Each definition brings together the base SCADA properties into a single entity that can be easily replicated within your project.

For example, if a pump is represented in your project as a piece of equipment, it will bring together the tags, events, alarms, permissions, communications, scheduling and scripting associated with the pump. You can associate the pump with a particular geographical area, or include it as part a functional process.

Note: To be able to define equipment, you need to have a Report Server process defined.
