On Ignition 8.1.15, I am trying to set alarms for a device. This device has a single tag to read the alarm codes. The alarm is activated when the code is greater than 0.
These codes are between 1 and 200, and two consecutive alarms can occur without going through 0.
So, I have set the alarm like this:
But I am simulating the alarms and they are always “cleared” automatically:
This is expected behavior according to the documentation, but it doesn’t seem consistent to me. If a condition is met to trigger the alarm, why is it automatically cleared without first going through the disable condition (= 0)?
“This alarm will never be ‘active’”…In my opinion, an alarm that never is activated, is not an alarm.
