As a part of the PcVue Solutions suite, Alert™ easily connects with PcVue through a dedicated interface (Mediator) as well as with other industrial SCADA systems, using DDE or the OPC protocol.
Alert™ issues information through various media: • Telephone (landline or mobile): operators are called by telephone, listen to alarms and acknowledge them through the integrated voice server. • Short messages (SMS) to alert operators working offsite via mobile phone or pager. • Dedicated paging systems to quickly alert maintenance operators working on site. • Fax, teleprinter and email to receive written reports of the alarms detected and their contexts. • Internet browser or WAP-enabled mobile phone. The calls are also logged by Alert™, together with the operators’ acknowledgements of them. Each acknowledgement of an alarm is automatically forwarded to PcVue.
