Alarm Logging

Alarm logging provides you with a straightforward process for creating and maintaining records to analyze the alarm state of equipment and processes in your system. As a result, alarm logging helps you determine if action is required to repair or maintain your system.

The Database Logger enables you to:

Log data about selected alarms or all alarms to an alarm log table.

Save the log files, until specified criteria occur.

Have the logged data discarded, based on specified criteria.

Save the logged data to another file for future analysis.

You can display, print and analyze that information in a report that you create or in an Excel CIMPLICITY Alarm Report that is included in CIMPLICITY..
