7.2.8   Associate Tag

The Associate Tag suppresses the alarms for this tag when the Associate Tag is in alarm. The Associate Tag is usually the “more important” alarm.  The Associate Tag is used to suppress nuisance alarms and help operators identify the cause of upset conditions.

The Associate Alarm Tag can be "LOG-ONLY" and still suppress alarms in the in alarm condition.

Both the Unacknowledged and Acknowledged Alarm state of the Associate Tag will suppress alarming of this tag. If the Associate Tag Alarm “clears” before it is Acknowledged, it will continue to suppress alarms in the Unacknowledged state.
