There are 3 ways GRIDlink can OPT OUT before or during an Event.

OPT OUT Using GRIDview

OPT-OUT is attained by clicking the green Opt Out button in GRIDview. See the image below.

The bit status is retained in the non-volatile RAM of the GRIDlink which makes it hold the condition even after a power re-cycle. It can be only turned OFF by clicking the green Opt Out button again.
