Products 4 Automation’s (P4A) introduction of WIN-911 alarm notification software enables managers and operators to be aware of problems in their plant, anywhere, anytime. WIN-911 is a real-time software that can be used with pagers, cell phones, landline phones and most wireless communications. It works with a company’s existing control software or SCADA system to monitor operations and notify personnel of problem conditions – a process that can save time, money, and unnecessary anxiety.
WIN 911 offers connectivity options to host software that are the most advanced in industry. These include GE-Fanuc (Proficy iFIX) Rockwell Automation (RSView32, FactoryTalk), Wonderware (InTouch) – as well as supporting generic OPC – the standard for robust real-time data transfer between different software modules – and DDE.
The ability to monitor operations and notify personnel of problem conditions, including offsite notifications by automated voice telephone call, SMS text message and paging, makes Win-911 applicable across the widest range of industries: Water & Wastewater, Power Plants, Oil & Gas, Automotive, Semiconductor, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Building Management & Security.
In order to provide the most secure, reliable and timely notification option, WIN911 offers users SMS 1-Way or SMS 2-Way text messaging. This method does not require an internet or email connection. Users just select a standard GSM modem and a text messaging plan from a local mobile phone provider. SMS 1-Way is featured with all WIN-911/Basic software installations. This allows SMS Text alarm messaging to be sent to all “on duty” users with a basic cell phone. It also gives notification when alarms have been acknowledged. SMS 2-Way is available with all WIN-911/PRO installations.
This features: Text notification on alarms, Individual alarm acknowledgement from the user’s cell phone, and “On Demand” list of alarms which have been acknowledged, but are still in the alarm condition, Health Status and 2- Way Manual Text messaging available in the WIN-911 alarm monitor.
Complementing SMS text messaging is WIN-911’s telephony functions. Here, integrated text-to-speech & voice synthesis functions instantly create all users required voice sound files in just minutes…OPC and Direct Connects will use the tag descriptions from the SCADA database as the default text for the tag sound. In addition, WIN 911 offers the opportunity to select Dynamic Text-to-Speech Runtime Voice Synthesis; the ability to verbalise text from the tag values and descriptions to the local audio and telephone notification types; and it eliminates the requirement for pre-recorded .wav files
Underlining the comprehensive nature of its alarm notifications, WIN-911 also supports a third level, where wireless or email notifications are required. To cater for these requirements, WIN-911 offers support; using SMTP service for emails, and TAP protocol for Alphanumeric Pagers.
