Reliability thanks to reliable notification function

  • Notification via the web interface and/or e-mail when irregularities in operation occur, e.g. malfunction, disrupted service, tripped switch, limit value violation, or operator action

  • Events to be reported can be selected on the basis of cause and significance

  • Limit values, delay times, and significance can be individually configured for alarms

Your benefit

  • The right amount of up-to-date information

  • Shorter response times for countermeasures

  • Avoidance of failures thanks to prompt interventions
