Alarm Management System ACC
Fast and reliable transmission of alarms in the event of faults
In modern operator control and monitoring systems, the fast and reliable signaling of fault states to the responsible persons is becoming increasingly important.
The modular Alarm Management System responds to these requirements by sending WinCC error messages to a variety of possible recipients completely automatically. For example:
The different variants of the Alarm Management System and the available options allow individual adaption to the requirements of the operator, from a stand-alone solution up to a company-wide communication solution.
Various communication media (SMS via GSM terminal with acknowledge capability, pager (Ascom/FunkTel), voice output (Wav and TextToSpeech), text output on HiPath/Hicom telephones, e-mail, etc.) are optionally supported
Integrated shift and personnel management for time-dependent delivery of messages to different persons
Extensive escalation system for reliable delivery of messages even when individual recipients cannot be reached
Network-wide operation and configuration through web capability.
Redundancy option for high-availability systems
Alarm filter option for suppressing message bursts, follow-on messages and nuisance messages
App for smartphones option for simple acknowledgment of messages and display of the message status
System monitoring option for monitoring alarm functions by means of a cyclical test of the software and hardware components
Change journal option for logging changes to the configuration, e.g. change in phone number, reorganization of the calling order
Dialog module option for integrating customer-specific functions
Conference option for setting up a telephone conference for up to 10 participants
Emergency call option for forwarding an emergency call to up to 10 participants
Person monitoring option for protecting persons who work on their own and may be at risk
To ensure the secure operation of a plant or machine it is also necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and to integrate the automation and drive components into a state-of-the-art holistic industrial security concept for the entire plant or machine. Any third-party products that may be in use must also be taken into account.
