Proficy adds alarm/event function

07/13/2006


A second Productivity Pack is now available from GE Fanuc Automation Inc. for Proficy HMI/SCADA iFix, Cimplicity, and View users.

“Today, customers need to be able to receive critical information regarding their systems at any time and anywhere,” said Roy Kok, senior HMI/SCADA product manager. “We have created Alarm & Event Express, an email notification tool for sending alarms to users based on the OPC A&E standard that works with our Cimplicity, iFix, and View products as well as other OPC A&E compliant applications.”

Kok pointed out that GE Fanuc has also worked with Specter Instruments to validate and integrate support for Win911 in the iFix product, allowing alarms to be sent to paging devices and phones, similar to the Pager option that exists for Cimplicity.

According to Frank Grygier of Specter Instruments Win911 Version 7.04 is enhanced for tighter integration with iFix and quality tested by GE Fanuc. It provides an iFix ActiveX Control to simplify setup and maintenance of the system from within an iFix display.

A third item in the productivity pack delivers a block type for use in the iFix Process Database. Persistent Array Block lets users store up to 60 values per block that can then be referenced in applications. This area can be used to store all types of values, from integers to scientific notation, for improved documentation and troubleshooting.
