Alarm Objects in Multiple Servers
In a multi-server system, you create alarm objects on the Enterprise Server. These objects, such as checklists and action notes, are inherited by the SmartStruxure server devices that are connected to that Enterprise Server. The copies on the connected SmartStruxure server devices are read-only, so in order to edit them you must edit their source objects on the Enterprise Server. One advantage with this is that you can display the objects and their content on the SmartStruxure server devices even if the Enterprise Server goes offline.
Alarms Pane and Alarm View Customization
You use the Alarms pane and the Alarm View to view and administer alarms. When an alarm is triggered, it is displayed in the Alarms pane or Alarm Views together with information about the alarm. You can edit the Alarm View filter to display the Alarm View only when certain alarms are triggered. You can create and use more than one Alarm View. The Alarms pane and each Alarm View can be customized with an alarm filter to show information that is relevant to the user who supervises the alarms. Customized settings are lost when you perform a system upgrade.
If you want to override an alarm configuration for a specific alarm or group of alarms you can use an alarm decoration rule.
You can add information when handling a trigger alarm. For example, you can add a comment to the alarm or open an action note that is connected to the alarm. When configuring an alarm, you can force the user to perform different actions when handling a triggered alarm.
A checklist is a set of steps that guides the user to which action to take when an alarm is triggered. If an alarm goes to normal state, the corresponding checklist is also reset and each step has to be checked again.
Action notes are grouped by category, with possible actions that may correct the problem listed in each category. An action note specifies the actions that you used to correct the problem that caused the alarm.
A cause note specifies the problem that caused the alarm. Cause notes are grouped by category, with possible alarm causes listed in each group. When an alarm is triggered, you can easily report the causes that triggered the alarm by selecting the predefined choices.
An alarm compares the value from a monitored variable with the conditions of the alarm. Different types of alarms handle different types of variables and different forms of evaluation.
