Alarm System – Reliable and Critical Alarm Management
Points in the InfoScan system can generate alarms when a value exceeds a limit or an abnormal condition is detected. An alarm message is generated at the operator workstation giving the severity of the alarm (Default, Urgent, Critical, or Emergency), the date and time that the alarm was detected, and a description of the condition.
Each point capable of generating alarm messages belongs to an Alarm Group. The Alarm Group is used to assign alarms to one or more Notify Groups (Paging System). The Notify Groups are used to page personnel about critical and emergency alarms. In addition to alarm messages on the operator workstation, the system can also send out a text page or an email to alert key personnel of the problem.
