Alarm Band OPC Indicator
Is it possible to configure an Alarm Band/List to only indicate OPC issues for a specific area of a plant?
I have multiple sets of OPC servers dedicated to specific areas of our plant.
I don't want the "orange cross" or "orange band" of the alarm list to indicate problems with ALL OPC servers, just the ones that are for that area of the plant.
Unfortunately, the orange border (=one complete Event Collector group ”lost” in the View of the Alarm Manager service) is shown in every list, even if list is filtered towards a not affected Event Collector.
The orange indication can be supressed per Alarm Collection Definition, eg you can turn off the indication for all your IM servers (hsAEOPCServer) which by the way only emit simple events.
For process alarms, the setting should be enabled to bring proper attention during server outages and/or system malfunction.
I suggest asking your regional ABB sales representative to forward this as an enhancement request.
