The Alarm Status Table has a lot of configuration options that can be used to do things like filter the list of alarms being displayed, to changing how the component displays them. Each of the pages in this section goes over setting up various aspects of the Alarm Status Table.

Vision Alarm Status - General Filtering

The Alarm Status table component has a lot of properties that allow you to filter on various parts of alarms. Learn about all of the different built-in ways that the Alarm Status Table can filter alarms.

Vision Alarm Status - Filter on Associated Data

Sometimes, the built in filters of the Alarm Status Table are not enough. The Alarm Status Table component allows you to filter alarms through scripting and filter on any of the alarms properties, including user created associated data properties.


Vision Alarm Status - Row Styles

The Alarm Status Table uses different styled rows to differentiate between alarms in different states. These Row Styles can be completely customized using whatever colors and fonts you want. You can even add a blinking style, allowing you to really draw attention to critical alarms!

Vision Alarm Status - Marquee Mode

Sometimes, the alarms displayed in the table can build up and it can be a pain to scroll through the list. The Alarm Status Table can be put into a Marquee Mode, where it will slowly scroll through the list of alarms at a pace that you specify. Learn how to set that up and how to use it.

Vision Alarm Status - Acknowledgment

Typically, the first step in fixing an alarm is acknowledging that the alarm is happening. Acknowledgement can play an important part in any alarm system which is why the ability to acknowledge alarms is built right into the Alarm Status Table component. Learn how to acknowledge alarms and what the different options are.

Vision Alarm Status - Shelving

Shelving alarms allows you to hit the snooze button on an alarm event, postponing the alarm until later. This can be useful when doing maintenance if Tags are constantly going in and out of alarm.

Vision Alarm Status - Tag History and Alarm History

The Alarm Status Table allows you to view Tag History for Tags that are currently in alarm. As long as history is being stored for that Tag, you can view the history right in the component to get an idea of what the value was prior to going into alarm. Was it a slow rise to the setpoint, or was it a large spike?

Using Alarm Status Tags in Vision 

While not part of the Alarm Status Table, these system Tags provide the number of Tags in specific states of alarm. Thes can be used to easily create a small notice of how many alarms are in the system without having to show the entire Alarm Status Table.
