For this project Grantek’s delivered an alarm management system with the use of the Ignition SCADA system software. This solution provides alarm monitoring, historization and management interface for 10,000+ points while also delivering ad-hoc and scheduled reporting tools to aid in the rationalization of up to 30,000 alarm events per day. Grantek’s solution, built with Ignition Perspective, also provides point change management and tracking tools to assist site administrators in maintaining the associated point meta data, without the versatile performance of Ignition these results would be difficult to achieve.
