Test Drive Advanced Alarms
Visit Keith Donaldson at the VTScada stand to test drive version 11.2 which includes new and augmented features that reduce risk and confusion when managing your SCADA alarms.

ISA 18.2 Alarm Management Standard - VTScada 11.2 helps you easily put into motion the strategies laid out in ISA 18.2.

Enhanced Situational Awareness - Instantly identify the status and priority of each alarm in the list.

  • Use text, symbols, colour, and sound to best meet the visual needs of your team. (e.g., colour vision deficiency)
  • Provide important context by adding encrypted operator notes to alarms.
  • New ‘Alarm Details’ dialog provides a complete overview of each alarm’s configuration, history, and notes.

Eliminating Nuisance Alarms - Shelving allows operators to temporarily silence and hide unhelpful alarms while still recording them in the alarm history. VTScada 11.2 conforms to the ISA 18.2 concept of shelved alarms.

  • Set shelved alarms to re-arm after a defined period.
  • Easily display a list of shelved alarms in the Alarm Page.
  • New ‘Bad Actors’ and ‘Alarm Flood’ reports identify chronic alarms so that they can be resolved.
