Alarm and Event List Object name and description
We are using AlarmCOndM control module for alarms but the problem is it will not list the object name instead it will show source name only. since we had 100s of alarms we used BDM to instantiate.
Now is there any way to get object name from the alarmcondM module?
ANother way to create the library with object name and description which includes alarmcondM and instantiate, which we dont want to do it at the last phase of project.
Thanks in advance.
AlarmCondM is designed as to be part of parent object, therefore AlarmCondM does not have Name and Description parameters. It means AlarmCondM shall not be an alarm owner object.
Instead SrcName of AlarmCondM shall be connected to Name parameter of parent object.
For example there is function block SignalLib.SignalBool , which is object itself and alarm owner . SignalBool generates alarm if input bool differs from normal value. DIC is similar block from PP Lib.
Also you may create your own Control module object including Name and Description parameters and containing AlarmCond inside .
An AlarmCond's SrcName parameter is set by IEC61131 code and propagates as "SourceName" to 800xA HMI
ObjectName in 800xA HMI is taken from the "Alarm Owner" (the object closest to the AlarmCond having the Alarm Owner attribute set). The HMI's "ObjectName" can be altered by using yjr Name Uploader function.
