Hi Shawn, this is Charles (407charles). I'm interested on the course coupon but I was not able to write the question on your blog, I tried for 30 min.
Well my question is regarding a panel view 300, my problem is with the alarm, it does not display the message when I trigger an alarm. I check the PLC tag and it does change the value from 1 to 3, however, the alarm does not show up but if I shut the system off and started again it shows the alarm. why is this happening?
In settings I selected the trigger tag N10:1 and “Value”. The alarm messages have the values from 1 to 3.
I found my problem, I did not keep the alarm long enough to trigger the alarm properly. The PLC program was working as needed stopping the process but the way I did the alarm program it was disabling the alarm run (with an XIC being open when alarm was trigger) therefore the HMI did not have the chance to look at it when I was resetting the alarm the rung close and then I had the alarm displayed. I just modify my alarm routine and that fixed the issue. Thanks a lot for your reply.
