Object Error Alarm in UniSimpleM Block faceplate.
I am trying to generate object Error alarm of UnisimpleM Block.
Done basic configurations (AE Config=1 etc.)
In case of output/input discrepensies with FB we are not getting any object error alarm, not even on faceplate.
Are we missing something ?

The Process Object Basic library contains two additional function block types and
two control module types that are based on the core objects, but contain fewer
functions than the Uni and Bi types:
• UniSimple(M) is based on Uni(M), but does not have any alarm handling.
Refer :-3BSE035981-510_en_System_800xA_Control_5.1_AC_800M_Binary_and_Analog_Handling Page No 286.
Go online in CBM.
Right click the block containing the alarm, select Alarm Conditions
If the state reported is 0 you have forgotten to enable, or made a parameter error, eg illegal characters or lack of uniqueness in SrcName+CondName. Check 800xA system event list at download - look out for AlmDefErr
Other condition states 1, 2, ... should result in an alarm in the PLC - then seek error upstream, eg OPC Server / Event Collector / Filtering
