Ignition Version: 8.1.25 running on windows server 2022.
RTU Device: Brodersen RTU32M (https://brodersen.com/products/rtu/rtu32m/)
Background: I have a RTU that is acting as a DNP3 slave device. I have a single binary input configured and I can successfully read this bit in Ignition. So far so good.
From the RTU documentation it says "The DNP3 protocol handles the time stamps and the following status bits: ...." it goes on to list the status bits of which bit 0 has the description "user definable".
My issue: There is some related data for most of my tags that would be really useful if I could just "encode" it into this "user definable" status bit. This would be better rather than creating a another DNP3 point for this information. However I cannot see where this information comes in with ignition. I have selected the "WITH_FLAGS" in the ignition driver under the advanced properties but I don't see this information anywhere. I don't see anything in the ignition documentation about what "flags" it supports, just that there are flags.
I was hoping it would come in as a property of the tag but I don't see it:
I have looked through the documentation and there does not appear to be any DNP3 functions in the scripting language to "pull" this data. There are DNP3 related functions but nothing for pulling the "definable" status flags:
Here is my driver config showing that WITH_FLAGS has been set:
Is this a thing with DNP3 where not all implementations are fully compatible or have I just completely miss-understood?
Thanks in advance
