Alarm states

When an alarm transitions to on, it enters a particular state. The states of an alarm are dictated by the type of CitectSCADA alarm tag. The Process Analyst supports CitectSCADA standard alarm types.

Note: For multi-digital alarms, the state descriptions are retrieved from the CitectSCADA alarm record.

The Process Analyst uses a different color, shading style, and description to represent each alarm state; these properties are configurable. For details, see Configuring alarm pens.
