1. System Platform 2014 R2 Import


With the release of System Platform 2014 R2, Field Attributes and User Defined Attributes have been combined into a single Attribute which has resulted in WIN-911 V7 now supporting User-Defined Attributes alarms. However, the WIN-911 Configurator import utility was originally designed to import Field Attribute alarms only. If you are using UDAs then you'll need to manually define the alarms in the WIN-911 Configurator.


A. Digital Definitions


If you are using a Boolean attribute, you will need to add the attribute to the WIN-911 Digital Definitions. You need to use the format ObjectName.AttributeName. You can leave the Description, Alarm Label, and Sounds fields blank as they will come from System Platform at run time.



B. Analog Definitions


If you are using an Integer, Float, or Double attribute, you will need to add the attribute to the WIN-911 Analog Definitions. You must use the format ObjectName.AttributeName. You can leave the Description and Sounds fields blank as they will come from System Platform at run time.



You can select which limit alarms you'd like WIN-911 to monitor on the Alarm Limits tab. You will notice the Alarm Limits are grayed out, this is because WIN-911 receives these limits from System Platform at run time. If you need to adjust the limits, adjust them in System Platform.



We will be releasing a new Import Utility soon which will import UDAs, until then, you'll need to continue entering them manually.
