Limits, multiple outputs and messages




I've got a sensor that can get different outputs. 1=ok, 2=fault, 3=temperature problem, 4=not present, etc. etc.

I want to set a warning and/or error with it's own warning/error message to each number of output. How can I do that?

At the Channel tab, by Limits I can only choose above or lower values.

Thanks in advance!

I'm afraid that isn't possible. Either you define the result values in such a manner that you can apply the warning / error using the above or lower values or you would need to define multiple threshold triggers or multiple sensors.
