Keeping a close eye on a facility's production line, technical equipment, IT network and buildings, while keeping employees safe, is a mission-critical challenge. : Improving safety and productivity across your site may be influenced by a wide range of factors.
ALERT can be used in a several different sectors of industry. Featuring an open architecture and boasting compatibility with a large number of protocols, ALERT lets you process alarms from the widest variety of sources:
• Industrial supervisory control systems (SCADA) with dedicated connectors
• Building management systems
• Automated systems (automatons, PLCs, etc.)
• Fire detection systems
• Access control / Anti-intrusion systems
• Lone worker protection (LWP)
• Patient calls
• And many more applications
ALERT can be used to centralize all the alarms across an entire site by making the necessary calls and guaranteeing greater traceability. However, alarms and the corresponding on-call teams may need to be partitioned in certain cases (multiples sites or companies).
ALERT is packed with an extensive set of features supporting multiple stations and allows users to:
• Remotely manage and monitor alarms from several ALERT instances installed at different sites
• Share the call resources of different remote ALERT systems with the option of a local fallback if synchronization is lost between the stations
• Partition the data belonging to specific services, companies, etc.
Multi-station operation is based on a central ALERT system that supports multiple stations. Different stations are then created for the various sites, companies and services.
Two multi-station arrangements are available:
• Virtual stations: all the alarms are retrieved on a local source, but the data (alarms and operators) are divided over virtual instances of ALERT (stations), meaning that information can be partitioned when operators sign into ALERT. As such, operators only have access to the data that they need to see.
• Real stations: alarms are received from remote PCs on which ALERT licenses have been installed. Those PCs receive alarms from a local data source.
