Analog Alarms

Analog alarms are triggered when an analog variable changes beyond one or more specific limits. Each alarm can be configured as any combination of the following types.

The variables configured for an analog alarm are polled at the rate set by the Citect.ini parameter [Alarm]ScanTime. If an alarm state triggers, notification will occur the next time the variables are polled. Be aware that the time associated with the alarm state will represent the time the variable was polled, not the actual time the alarm condition occurred.

To configure an analog alarm:

  1. Choose Alarms | Analog Alarms. The Analog Alarms dialog box appears.
  2. Enter the alarm properties.
  3. Click Add to append a new record, or Replace to modify an existing record.
