Alarming - Freelance 2016
I have Upgrade to Freelance 2016.
On a Operator Station configured a sound board pointed .wav folder for audio.
When an alarm is active the Control Room Horn comes active/sounds. The operator keeps silencing the Control Room Horn.
After silencing the control room horn for a while, control room horn does not come ON, even when new alarms come true.
At he moment the plant is still offline therefore there are lots of alarms active-Will this be the issues for Control Room horn to be silent when new Alarms come thorugh.
My buffer size is 2000.
Or should I just wait until the plant is online and there are not 2 many alarms active and then check.
Those new alarms comesin are Pri 1..3 alarms ?
because from the image you have shared, there incoming Pri 1..3 messages will only trigger the control room horn, So if you are getting system messagesS1..S3 or Pri 4 messages control room horn will not sound, So observe that is that is the scenario or even for new Pri 1...3 alarm messages there is no sound ?
Also would like to check that operator is using 'audio acknowledge button' to silence control room horn available at top right hand side corner ? not the mute button ?
And yes, will be good to check in beginning when plant is running and there are few real alarms. Bye the way you can test this via emulator, running some logic and trigger alarm and check. I have Freelance 2016 and I have same setting as you have and tried to simulate and it works fine, even after silencing when new pri1...3 message appears that gives sounds ...
