ABB Ability™ System 800xA Alarm Management
Dramatically improve operator’s ability to manage DCS alarms on larger sections of the plant. Lower costs, reduce the control room footprint or consolidate several units into one for greater efficiency.
With fewer operators controlling ever-larger process areas, effective alarm management is essential for protecting the plant, its workers and the surrounding environment. Yet today, too many operators face too many alarms. As a result, they often turn acoustic alarms off, acknowledge alarms without acting, or suppress them for long periods. They may not even know what a particular alarm means.
ABB Ability System 800xA Alarm Management changes this. It directs operator attention towards those plant conditions that require assessment, and the information for them to act correctly.
