Option 5.3. Continue for Network Alarm Printers

When you print directly to a network printer the Alarm Page functionality does not print alarm messages as they happen, by default. Instead, it waits until there is a full page of alarms to send to the printer.

To print the current set of unprinted alarms:

  1. Click Tools>Command Prompt on the Workbench menu bar.

A DOS window opens in the CIMPLICITY project directory.

  1. Enter amlp_flush.exe.

Result: The alarms will be printed.

Note: You can also initiate amlp_flush.exe from scripts within the CIMPLICITY environment. This will trigger printing whenever the specified conditions (for example an alarm going off) are met.
