Alarm Messages are displayed in a row in order of when they were triggered.
Set the format of the Alarm History display.
Select how to specify the display block from either [Direct] or [Address].
When the [Block] is set to [Direct], select the registered block with the alarm message to be displayed from [Block 1] to [Block 8]. When the [Block] is set to [Address], set the address specifying the block to be displayed.
Before the display startup, if there is a communication error with the device/PLC set as the specified block address, alarm parts will not appear. As long as the alarm monitoring address indicates alarms are active, when communication is recovered with the device/PLC defined for the block address, all alarm messages that arose to that point will display.
When there is a communication error with the device/PLC defined for the block address, as long as communication with the device/PLC set up for the alarm monitoring address remains active the display will update, although the block number will not change.
Choose the Alarm Message display method from [History], [Log], or [Active].
