Complete Control of Alarm Annunciation
The process alarm interface has become one of the most important features of process control systems. The proliferation of alarm capability and ease with which more alarms are being added is astounding. The process operators' responsibility to monitor these alarms is normally a reasonable task. However, when a significant failure in the process occurs, the alarm system itself can become dangerous if the flood of alarms is too great for the operator to handle.
ProSys recognized this problem and implemented its first successful alarm management application in 1990. We have continued to develop and enhance our software, providing the most effective tools available for managing alarm annunciation.
First released in 1995, Dynamic Configuration Software (DCS) has become the most widely used real-time dynamic alarm management software worldwide. DCS consists of five independent but compatible software modules and Special Alarm Management (SAM).
These modules provide the capability to manipulate any alarm point parameter, releasing the power of your TPS / TDC3000 system and giving you complete control of alarm annunciation. Further, each alarm can be managed on a Full-Cycle basis to re-enable when they are clear of any alarm condition or when reminding (re-alarming) is desired.
