4 Configuration Settings Appendix
INOPRelayLatency / Yel.RelayLatency Use this setting to define how long a yellow alarm
or INOP condition must be active before an alarm is issued on any device connected to the alarm relay.
These settings are valid for all serious INOP conditions/all yellow alarms respectively.
Alarm Text Use this setting to define how alarm messages are presented on the monitor screen:
– Standard: Alarm texts are displayed in text form, for example ** Spo2 LOW
– Extended: Alarm texts are displayed as numeric values, for example, ** Spo2 94 < 96, where
the second number shows the current alarm limit, and the first number shows the maximum amount
by which this limit was exceeded.
NoCentrMonMinVol If your monitor is connected to an IntelliVue Information Center, and the
connection is interrupted, the INOP message No Central Monit. will appear, accompanied by an
INOP tone. To help ensure that this INOP, and any other active alarm, is not overlooked, the INOP and
alarm tones may be configured to have a minimum volume. In this case, INOP and alarm tones will sound
even if the monitor alarm volume is set to zero.
LED Brightness lets you configure the brightness of the alarm lamps. Three choices are available:
High, Medium, and Low.
