Safety Interlock Lockout function in 800XA operator
This is requirement from one of our Utility customer. It like Lockout tagout function in software.
If an operator is controlling a device, if he close a breaker isolator after that operator enables a lock, no other operator is allowed to operate that isolator until same operator remove the lock for that device.
It is like in process saftey override, once it is overriden it can only me removed by person who activated it. But in this case this is a perticular signal , here we are talking about operation of any equipments.
System : 800xA 5.1 FP4
One possible method is to use the Lock server service, it would prevent someone else from opening the faceplate to operate while someone else has a "lock" on it. Please look at 3BSE037410-600 on page 186. There is a issue where if the operator closes this faceplate the "lock" will disengaged.
You might need to build special configuration in your application for this functionality you are looking for.
