What is Alarm Management?
Alarm Management systems are utilised by many in process industries to notify plant personnel of abnormal conditions, events or equipment malfunctions of a particular process or line. An alarm is a visible or audible notification of an abnormal event or situation.
In the process industry, alarms typically provide operators information which indicates a probable root cause and response. Properly managed alarms can substantially reduce production costs and downtime whilst providing safe and efficient industrial working environments.
How can ICONICS help with Alarm Management?
ICONICS’ Alarm technology is built on the internationally recognised Alarm Management standard, ISA 18.2. The technology allows users to prioritise, dynamically filter, shelve and rationalise alarms from single or multiple processes. Operators can be notified in real-time of root cause alarms allowing them to correctly prioritise.
