Standard (1-Sec) alarm setup parameters

Configure the standard alarm setup parameters as required.

ION Setup controls are shown in parentheses.

NOTE: It is recommended that you use ION Setup to configure standard (1-Sec) alarms. ION Setup supports a higher resolution to allow you to specify more decimal places when setting up the pickup setpoint and dropout setpoint values for certain measurements.
Setting Option or range Description
Enable Yes (checked) or No (cleared) This enables or disables the alarm.
Priority High, Medium, Low, None This sets the alarm priority and notification options.
Pickup Setpoint (Pickup Limit) Varies depending on the standard alarm you are setting up This is the value (magnitude) you define as the setpoint limit for triggering the alarm. For “over” conditions, this means the value has gone above the Pickup limit. For “under” conditions, this means the value has gone below the Pickup limit.
Pickup Time Delay (Delay) 0 to 999999 This specifies the number of seconds the signal must stay above the pickup setpoint (for “over” conditions), or below the pickup setpoint (for “under” conditions) before the alarm is tripped.
Dropout Setpoint (Dropout Limit) Varies depending on the standard alarm you are setting up This is the value (magnitude) you define as the limit for dropping out of the alarm condition. For “over” conditions, this means the value has gone below the Dropout limit. For “under” conditions, this means the value has gone above the Pickup limit.
Dropout Time Delay (Delay) 0 to 999999 This specifies the number of seconds the signal must stay below the dropout setpoint (for “over” conditions), or above the dropout setpoint (for “under” conditions) before the alarm condition is ended.
PU Set Point Lead/Lag (Lead, Lag) Lead or Lag Applies to PF (power factor) alarms only. Use this to set the PF value and quadrant to set the pickup setpoint for an over PF condition (PF Leading) or under PF condition (PF Lagging).
DO Set Point Lead/Lag (Lead, Lag) Lead or Lag Applies to PF (power factor) alarms only. Use this to set the PF value and quadrant to set the dropout setpoint for an over PF condition (PF Leading) or under PF condition (PF Lagging).
