What date and time is used from a Real Time SCADA Signal?

When using a Real Time Signal in SCADAConnect, what date / time does the program select from the data source? 


A real time SCADA Signal always selects the latest (highest) date / time from the data source, to display in the program. This may be slightly different from the current clock time but generally should be considered the most recent data from the SCADA system. Basically it assumes that the most recent entry in the data source represents the current, "live" conditions.

So, if your Real Time data source is not connected to where the SCADA system is actively writing live data to, then you will see data reported for a time that may not be close to the current date / time. It will be the most recent date / time in the data source.
