Is there a way to list all active alarms? I am looking for a mechanism to list all active alarms after the dialog boxes have been closed and for a easy way to determine if there is an active alarm after a dialog has been closed.
The Active Error Level SIC channel will only have a value of 1 (alarm) or 2 (error) if the alarms are NOT acknowledged. Once the dialog is closed the channel's value returns to 0 even if the alarm/error is still active. I like to use this status to turn on a lamp on the dash if any alarms/errors are present even if the dialogs have been closed and then provide the operator with a place to go to to look at all active alarms when that lamp is turned on.
Perhaps having the ability to connect the Reactivation property for System Dialog Boxes to a channel could be a means to force all the alarm popup to be displayed again by changing the time to 1s when the user presses a button, otherwise set it to some large value.
