Alarm and event archiving speeds recovery from unplanned shutdowns


A North American energy producer’s SCADA system did not provide accurate event time stamp of the alarms or store the alarms for later use, noticeably increasing recovery time from an unplanned shutdown. The company implemented a system to store and view alarm and event data from the sequence-of-events recorder in its PLC controls system.

The ability to store and view events lets maintenance personnel accurately and expediently troubleshoot the system. Easy access to data lets engineers provide confident support, reducing maintenance, downtime and lost revenue.
