I would like to automatically clear all alarms on a machine/line, and stop any new ones, when the personnel adds a manual alarm/event like lunchbreak, cleaning, format change and so on. I have tried to do this by automatically changing the enabled-part of the alarms to false. And while this kind of works it doesn’t really do it for me. The alarm gets cleared and disappears from the status table, but there is no clear time, and no entry to the alarm journal. This makes it harder to use the journal database with queries and to understand the data outside of Ignition.
The only way I can think of to get this to work is changing all the alarms to “on condition” and add these manual stop-tags to if-expressions before evaluating the actual alarm. Though that wouldn’t be very userfriendly.
I have tried this with 8.0.15 and 8.1rc1 without any difference.
Any help is highly appreciated!
