AC800M system alarm- Priority Change
Hi All, I am getting AC800M system alarms (please see the attachment). First I want to change the alarm priority from 3 to 4 and then i want to add description then it will easy to understand the alarm information.
Can someone help me how to change the system alarm priority from 3 to 4 and guide me how to add more description of the internat system alarm of AC800M.
The Priority is a direct Mapping from the "severity" which is defined as "severity level" in the controller and uses following system variables to map to a severity
CPU Parameter Name
System Variable Name
AE System AE low severity
AE System AE medium severity
AE System AE high severity
AE System AE critical severity
AE System AE fatal severity
To map the Severity to the Priority in 800xA, the "Alarm Priority Mapping" Aspect is used, located under Alarm Collection Definitions in the Library Structure, Alarm & Even Object, separately for each Event Collector Service.
As Process Events use Severity as well you need to configure it so that finally you have the correct Priorities for all Events in your system!
For the Description i don't know a way to set this but you could use the "Object Description" to at least give some Information about the Hardware Object itself, by filling the Name Aspect of the Object in 800xA.
