Out of Reference Range Alarms
The out of reference range alarm monitors variable movements comparing to a reference variable. By setting an upper deviation limit and lower deviation limit, you configure the tolerance the monitored variable can vary from the reference variable before the alarm is triggered. The upper alarm limit of the monitored variable is equal to the reference point current value plus the upper deviation limit. The lower alarm limit of the monitored variable is equal to the reference point current value minus the lower deviation limit.
