Edge HMI Webinar Series: Intelligent Alarming for Edge HMI and SCADA

Register for on-demand webinar

HMI and SCADA Alarms are an effective way to reduce machine or process downtime. An intelligent system design incorporates context, time/date and a filtering mechanism to understand what are symptoms and what was the actual cause. This webinar provides an overview of alarm functions for Edge HMI, and offers an insight in how alarms work in this powerful HMI/SCADA software.

Watch our webinar to learn:

  • Creation of alarm setpoints during development and how to modify those setpoints during runtime
  • How to create and archive alarms in files on the local hard drive or any database (Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Oracle and others), and understand the format of how alarms are stored
  • How to view alarms that are currently active, or scroll back in time to view past alarms that have been logged
  • Changing colors of critical alarms, fonts, column size and width, or create filters for groups, priorities, custom types, and more
  • Capturing alarms as PDFs and attach them as emails or print hard copies for later use
  • Mandatory or optional acknowledgement of alarms, and how to configure to help maintain 21 CFR Part 11
  • Using alarms to separate machine or process faults (non-critical) from warnings (critical)
  • Embedding values directly in alarm messages. And use alarm messages from the PLC so you don't have to maintain the messages in 2 separate places
  • Advanced filtering techniques that can guide you to finding and fixing problems fast
