About the Alarm Sound Manager

The Alarm Sound Manager is a stand-alone utility that plays sound and displays alarm information for selected running CIMPLICITY projects that are broadcasting on your local network. The Alarm Sound Manager plays sound for one alarm at a time, the alarm that has the highest priority based on your configuration (in both the Alarm Class Configuration dialog box and the CIMPLICITY® Alarm Sound Manager dialog box).

The CIMPLICITY® Alarm Sound Manager can be opened through the Windows Start menu and through the CIMPLICITY Workbench. Once opened, an icon is placed on the Windows Task bar. The icon can be used to display or minimize the dialog box.

Important: You configure the sound (.wav file or beeps) for projects in each class' Alarm Classes Configuration dialog box. The Alarm Sound Manager only deals with classes for which sound is configured. As a result, the Alarm Sound Manager does not report alarms associated with classes for which no sound is configured.

You can create sound either:

From a wave file if your system supports .wav files.

With the beep, if your system has a speaker.
