Alarm and event configuration in 800XA 6.1
Alarm and Event List Configuration:
Alarms are signals announced to the operator by an audible sound, some form of visual indication, and/or with a message of some kind. The alarm indicates a problem and the purpose is to direct the operator’s attention towards plant conditions, so the user can correct potentially dangerous situations in time.
There are two types of alarms and events.
• Process Alarms and Process Events are generated from your process, such as failure in a valve or pump or an overpressure in a tank.
• System Alarms and System Events are generated from the 800xA System, for example network problems, file system errors or server errors.
Customer should decide what the lists should look like; how many columns should be included, which colors should be used, in what sort order should the alarms appear and so on.
For more information on creating and configuring Alarm and Event Lists, refer to System 800xA Configuration manual 3BDS011222
