As an example, it is a common but poor practice to simply change the color of a process value on a graphic to indicate it has come into alarm. ) The indicator is multiply coded with fill color, a unique shape, and a text designation. 1 psi Suppressed Alarm Figure 4-1: Multiply Coded Alarm Indication Elements Chapter 4–Common DCS and SCADA Alarm Display Capabilities— and Their Misuse 31 Graphics should contain no gratuitous animation elements. It is proper, however, for the alarm indicator to blink for a new, unacknowledged alarm as an attention-getting device.

Make thoughtful decisions about these options as you select them; do not just use the default settings. Alas, this will involve the dreaded task of reading the system documentation. If you are purchasing a new control system, be sure to make needed alarm display capabilities part of your specification. We still see many alarm system design omissions from the DCS manufacturers. Proper design should include the following elements: • Priority systems allowing independent priority settings for each alarm • Alarm summaries that update the alarm list or measurement values dynamically • Ability to temporarily suppress the alarm sound for some priorities • Navigation ability to go, in one click, from an alarm on the display to the proper graphic for diagnosing the relevant situation • Temporary alarm scroll freezing to aid readability The delivered systems will not improve without pressure from potential buyers.

Me: Why? Does he have to input a weight or flow number or something to make it proceed from step to step? Engineer: No, it’s automatic as long as it is working right. But they may need to know for a lot of reasons. Me: OK, so why not build a simple graphic element to show the progress of the system in its cycle, the time steps started or finished, the expected time of completion, and so forth. The operator can choose to look at the graphic whenever they really need to, when they choose. Create alarms like I mentioned earlier, reflecting an ABNORMAL, not a NORMAL condition.
