Stop EF after given time
Als a PI admin I want to have the option to stop/end a EF after a given time. This helps to trigger and track onetime events as for example taking a reactor sample.

In my operations, we want to create an event frame for a deliberately-triggered test that lasts for a prescribed time. We know how long the test takes, so making the event frame last a prescribed time instead of trying to find a combination of variables to use as an approximated ending trigger would be very helpful.

Exactly, we have requirement to stop the EF at midnight and re-open it to calculate the averages appropriately. Now, we are struggling create a EF with proper duration because EF being closed and opened at the same time.Working on taking different approach to periodically check and close the EF before midnight.
Maybe taking this a bit broader. Not only a maximum duration, but we could also want to "split" the EventFrame at specific times. E.g. stop the running EF at midnight, and start a new EF if the trigger conditions are still true. Example use case: split downtime events on shift changes.
