Allow Export and Import of alarms in CSV format

It's very tedious to add alarm condition to items, especially with OPC DA.  Allow alarm database import and export would make this process much much easier.  A similar alternative is to allow copy and paste from Excel like some other apps (SubNET Station).

    We have launched this feature with WIN-911 2021 R5 for OPC Classic and UA Data Access servers.

    Hello Clayton,

    Yes, it will. When configuring a tag, you'll be able to select from Least Significant Bit (LSB) and Most Significant Bit (MSB). Bit picking is only available for Boolean alarms.

    A few other features worth mentioning...

    Acknowledgment Sync: This allows you to sync the ack state with a SCADA system by writing to and monitoring ack tags. (Boolean alarms only)

    Value Substitution for Boolean alarms: If you are using boolean items to represent level alarms, you'll be able to substitute the value present in the alarm details with another tag. For example, you're monitoring a boolean for tanklevel.hi.alarm, when the alarm is triggered, you'll be able to sub in a tag with the value of the tank level.

    Active/Inactive Descriptions: V7 allows for two different alarm labels, so we're bringing it back as Active/Inactive Descriptions. You'll still have a separate description just for the tag/item.

    Alarm Delay: An alarm condition must persist longer than the configured delay before an alarm is generated.

    Deadband: Calculated by percentage or value. PV must exceed Deadband before an alarm is cleared.


    I've added a screenshot of the Boolean and Level alarm configuration.

    -Steven

    @StevenRivas Will this new OPC module also allow for bit selection for when alarms have been Bit Packed into a single word?

    Hello,

    I wanted to let you all know we will be releasing a new OPC module for OPC UA DA, OPC UA A&C, and OPC DA Classic at the end of Q2 this year. These modules will include a CSV Import/Export to make it easier to configure WIN-911, as well as a new Import Wizard.

    Regards,

    Steven Rivas
