Graphic Operation Terminal F930GOT
This section describes the alarm function in the GOT which monitors up to 256 specified con-
secutive bit devices and displays alarm messages created by the user on the screen or dis-
plays a specified screen when the monitored bit devices become ON.
The alarm function is very useful. By using the alarm function, alarm messages and the list of
current alarms can be displayed, the alarm history can be stored, the machine status can be
monitored, and troubleshooting can be facilitated.
