APM.MEAS_CHK - APMonitor Option

 Type: Integer, Input
Default Value: 1
Description: Measurement checking: 1=ON, 0=OFF


MEAS_CHK indicates whether to check the validity of measurements before they are used in an application. When MEAS_CHK=0 (OFF), there is no checking of the measurement. Although an application may have specific validation limits, it is occasionally desirable to take off the checks to observe raw data input to the model without error detection. All measurement validation actions are reported in the text file dbs_read.rpt. BNDS_CHK, FRZE_CHK, and MEAS_CHK are options regarding data cleansing before it enters the applications. When a measurement is bad, the LSTVAL is restored as the measured value or else LSTVAL+VDVL or LSTVAL-VDVL. The VDVL shift depends on whether VLACTION is 0 (keep LSTVAL) or else is 1 (step by VDVL towards measurement).
