What is Alarm Management?

Alarm management systems are utilized 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. Successful organizations require intelligent management of alarms, so as to prevent alarm flood (too many alarm notifications to which to successfully respond), but also ensure proper response to those alarms deemed critical to an organization’s operations.

How Alarm Management Works

ICONICS alarm technology is built on the internationally recognized alarm management standard ISA 18.2. The technology allows users to prioritize, dynamically filter, shelve and rationalize alarms from single or multiple processes. Operators can be notified in real time of root cause alarms, allowing them to correctly prioritize.
