Alarm Line at top of workplace stops updating after random number of days
800xa, version 5.1 system. We have a multiple monitor workplace defined with 4 monitors - although only 3 physical monitors exist at this workstation. Each monitor is defined the same way in the Workplace Layout. Everything works fine except the Alarm Line (3 line alarm list in Fixed Display area at top of workplace) stops updating after a random number of days. It does not stop updating on all monitors at the same time. Anyone know of a fix or workaround for this problem? Is there any way to refresh the Fixed Display areas of a workplace without restarting the workplace? Also the "Alarm Band" buttons and Clock Display do not seem to have this problem - only the Alarm Line.
What version? Apart from 5.1 "blank", there exists four different revisions and five feature packs. 5.1 RevE is just around the corner, if not already released.
5.1 RevA and FP1 had a problem with updating of the alarm list/line. A temporary correction can be downloaded from ABB Library.
