7. Control Nuisance Alarms

There are three ways to control nuisance alarms in T/Mon:

  • Alarm tagging: Tagging an alarm silences it permanently until the user un-tags it. To tag an alarm, highlight the alarm point in the T/Mon COS screen and press Shift-F10. The alarm will remain silenced until you un-tag it by highlighting the point and pressing F10.

  • Alarm silencing: Silencing an alarm temporarily silences an alarm for a user-specified time. To silence an alarm, highlight the alarm point in the T/Mon COS screen and press Alt-F3.

    You can also silence an entire alarm window. Select the window in the T/Mon Alarm Summary Screen and press Alt-F3.

  • Alarm qualification times: Alarm qualification is a convenient way to control alarms that are usually self-correcting, like power failures and fades. You won't see the alarm if it self-corrects, but if the alarm stays failed for a user-specified time, T/Mon will declare an alarm.
