Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > Alarm Parameters > [Alarm]SetTimeOnAck


Determines whether the {Time} field in your Alarm Display and Alarm Log Device contains the time when an alarm is triggered, or the time when the alarm is acknowledged.

When this parameter is enabled and the operator acknowledges an alarm, the {Time} field on the alarm page (and associated with the alarm record) is changed to the current time. If you want the {Time} field to remain at the time when the alarm was triggered, set this parameter to 0.

Note: This parameter has no effect on the Alarm Summary Display and Alarm Summary Device, which have separate {OnTime} and {AckTime} fields.

Allowable Values:

Default Value: 1
