VIGIPLUS' SCADA system is especially aimed at monitoring, so Alarm or Events Management is a highly relevant feature.

The system has a number of management procedures of events based on the equipment where a given event has occurred, on the signal type and on the characteristics of the control room.

Any event can be configured as critical, so when it is activated the system will display it on the screen monitor that the user prefers.

Usually, the most common operation of the alarm system is the management by means of the Incidence-Aware-Attended process, which simultaneously switches the screen, displays the message or emergency procedure for each case, records the event in history files and executes the actions programme provided for the event.

The management is complemented by a series of dynamic lists, corresponding to different kinds of pending events, such as failed or disabled equipment, pending alarms, etc.
