HMI text editor objects

Alarm Status

Indicator of alarm states. The object displays status of an alarm block, and alarm can be acknowledged or reset here according to its state - see table below. An alarm block has five possible states:

State
Display indicationDescription Possible actionsalr_status variable value
Normal
OK
Normal state, no alarm
-
0
Alarm active *
Active unacknowledged alarm Acknowledge 1280
Active acknowledged * + tick
Alarm acknowledged, still active-
1792
Memory, acknowledged   -x  
Acknowledged, inactive
Reset 1536
Memory, unacknowledged\\-
Inactive, unacknowledged Reset 1024

To keep full functionality, the object must be linked with blocks “Lib.Core.V1_1.BD56_SingleAlarmMemoryDelay” or “Lib.Core.V1_1.BD57_AlarmMemoryExt”, variable alr_status

HMI Template

The “HMI Template” object inserts a predefined template into a text menu. If this is a PLC menu, it is possible to insert a HMI program template or function block template. If this is a terminal menu, it is possible to insert a HMI program template or function block template, or a complete PLC template. See more on general HMI templates in the Full mode help.
