V430 Alarms not displaying

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a V430 and wish to implement a basic alarm system whenever a motor goes 'over torque'.

I have set up the alarm in the 'Alarm Config Utility' but cannot get the alarm window to display.

I have even tried to map the ladder function 'show alarm' to a push button on the HMI. When I monitor the ladder function I can see the push button energising and de-energising but the alarm window never shows on the HMI. The alarm trigger bit is also energised.

Thanks in advance,

The Alarm Config Utility may be overkill for what you're trying to do.  An alarm here goes into the alarm manager with a time and date stamp and is shown on the Alarm Manager display, which must be called.

Are you looking for this functionality or do you just want a red box to appear on the display when the alarm happens?

It's always a good idea to post your code when you have a ladder question.
