This is used for monitoring areas of a process which may require operator intervention when defined or abnormal conditions are met, as well as identifying faulty equipment, create maintenance work orders and improving operator effectiveness.
In addition to the operators handling of Alarms and Events, the plug-in can also be used to collect and record alarm and event information for audits or used in correlation with other historical data.
The OPC Alarms and Events is a plug-in module to our industry leading communications server, KEPServerEXand works in conjunction with KEPServerEX's free AE (Alarms and Events) Client Interface.
Creating an alarm is as simple as browsing the existing tags within KEPServerEX and selecting the item that will be used as the alarm. Once an item is chosen, a condition and sub condition need to be set for the item.
A trigger is then set comparing the current data value and the threshold. When the condition's trigger is met, an alarm will be sent to the corresponding Alarms and Events Client application, providing the user with unique alarm input, output and acknowledgement messages.
