About Alarm Classes

You can group Alarms with similar characteristics by Alarm Class.

You can then assign:

An order or priority to each Alarm Class. The order is a number from 0 to 99, where 0 is the highest priority and 99 is the lowest priority.

Colors and blinking that provide immediate visual recognition of different levels in the alarm class state.

For example, an alarm class may be defined as a high priority alarm. The alarm state may be in a High state

Audio support that provides immediate recognition when an alarm in the class is generated.

Important: The default number of alarm classes is 550. This number can be changed by adding a MAX_ALARM_CLASSES parameter to a globals.ini file.
