How to set up alarm event in Freelance AC900F?
I am using AC900F controller with CBF (ver 10.1) and DIgiVis.
I am trying to set up an alarm event so that it would show up in DigiVis.
Does anybody has sample application or step by step set up procedure for a simple alarm event?

It's simple in Freelance you don't need step by step procedure. As in DigiVis message list is pre-configured by default so no need to do anything on that part.
There are two type of alarms (i) system (ii) process messages. For system alarms you don't need to do anything. Its by default generated if anything goes wrong with hw or system, system alarms divided in three levels S1,2,3, Process alarms are divided in (1-5) level.
Now how to configure it ? you can use Monitoring blocks to generate alarms & events ( check for libraries in project tree),
apart from that while building your logic, in some of the default function blocks parameterization you can find message text for alarms generation for limits and switching of state. More than that you can configure priorities, hysteresis values.
And that is done, all configured text will appear in messaging list.
Also there is possibility to customise/configure message list area while digivis in operation, double click on VIS resource in project tree, there is lot's of field to customise/configure message list.
in addition to this you can configure different type of logs, As you are installed with freelance software get benefit of online help, press F1 key or go to menu option help > content, then at left hand column look for topics messaging and hints, logs. It's described very well there.
Hope these helps.
