Do not rely solely on alarms for the maintenance of your equipment.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.

For each device connected to the Panel Server , you can enable and/or disable alarms which are issued in the case of electrical events or communication loss.

An active alarm disappears when conditions of the alarm are no longer met.

Alarms are defined by severity:

  • High severity

  • Medium severity

  • Low severity


This function is available on Panel Server Entry , Universal , and Advanced .

Selecting Alarms

Alarms to be displayed when they become active can be enabled individually for each device as follows.

A maximum of 100 alarms can be enabled concurrently.

  1. Click the device name on the EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages, at Settings > Data management .

  2. Click Alarms.

  3. Enable/disable an alarm with the Enable alarm checkbox.

    NOTE: By default, alarms are disabled.
NOTE: The alarm bit in Modbus register is always active therefore it is not available in the Alarms webpage.
NOTE: When the Panel Server is connected to the Schneider Electric cloud (see Publication on Schneider Electric Cloud), the selection of alarms is managed at the cloud level. Therefore, it is not possible to enable/disable alarms from the Alarms webpage.

Notification of Alarms

When an alarm is enabled and becomes active, it is displayed in the page of the device on the Monitoring and Control webpage.

On Panel Server Advanced :


The complete list of alarms is as follows:

  • Concerning MasterPact NT/NW circuit breakers, the ERMS (Energy Reduction Maintenance Setting) feature is limited. ERMS alarm is compatible from Panel Server only when ERMS application is configured on IO module 1. When the application switch of IO module 1 is set to position 3, you may receive a notification of ERMS activation due to electrical noise on the IO module. It does not necessarily indicate that the ERMS mode is activated. Schneider Electric recommends always confirming by checking the present alarm status from the Panel Server webpages and ERMS status indicator on the MasterPact NT/NW circuit breaker. For more information, refer to NHA67346 Energy Reduction Maintenance Setting (ERMS) System Installation and User Guide.

  • Concerning IO module generic function, alarm activation is enabled when the input status is 1.

  • When Acti9 iATL24, OFSD or iACT24 auxiliaries are connected under an I/O Smart Link device and commissioned in the Panel Server , if the cable is disconnected from the I/O Smart Link device, a Circuit breaker opened alarm is triggered into the Panel Server instead of the Communication Loss alarm.
