7.8        Alarm Graphic

Alarm Graphic can be assigned for each tag in the system to help operators quickly find the appropriate display and correct the alarm. Engineers and technicians assign the alarm graphic during configuration of a tag.

Using the GOTO ALARM GRAPH keymacro or the Alarm Graph button on the Alarm Summary Display will call up the alarm graphic.  It is typically used to allow an operator to jump from the Alarm Summary display to a graphic relevant to the alarm. The Alarm Graphic can be any user-built graphic display. The tag must be in the Alarm State for the GOTO Alarm Graph function to work

Graphic names can have any length.  EXCEPT the Alarm Graphic is limited to 8 characters.
