Alarm and Event Management
SeQent’s FirstPAGE Alarm Manager (FPAM) product line adds a sophisticated Alarm and Event management engine to our FirstPAGE product line. FirstPAGE Alarm Manager Server, combined with various FirstPAGE Alarm Manager Gateways, form a homogeneous environment easily managed from a centralized location. The FirstPAGE Alarm Manager Server allows for the execution of a messaging hierarchy including repeat messages as events age, the delay before sending an initial message to ensure the event is not transient, and multiple levels of escalation. FirstPAGE Alarm Manager only requires the source system to report “alarm active” and “alarm inactive”, for any alarming event. Additional logic need not be added to the process control solution (i.e. PLC or HMI/SCADA system) or Building Management/Life Safety Systems to provide a very robust escalation tree. Easily scalable to handle thousands of alarms per hour, a single FirstPAGE Alarm Manager Server can be used to dispatch alarms from 20+ homogeneous or heterogeneous gateways.
- Manages the entire life cycle of alarms from initiation to termination
- Provides escalation schemes with message content, repeat counts, and delay
- Import/ export for easy mass configuration and reconfiguration
- Real-time embedded alarm values
- Multiple applications can send messages to the same device
FirstPAGE Alarm Manager Gateway for OPC collects data from one or more OPC DA or OPC HDA compliant servers, allows business rule definition against the collected data and sends alarms to FirstPAGE Alarm Manager Server for processing. Alarm information such as name, trigger test and value, and various collected values from OPC data sources are all available for alarm message composition.
