Severity improvements for v15
In version 15 we have improved various areas in concerning the severity indication in Supervise.
With these improvements we continue our journey of ISA 101 implementing a “High Performance” HMI.
Severity icons in Embedded Alarm List
Severity icons was missing in Embedded Alarm list in Supervise. To align with the Alarm module, the a severity column can now be added to the list.
Severity icons for Bar, Button, Rectangle, Rectangular Field and Text.
Severity indications with alarm frame and icon were previously only available for Symbols and Animated Symbols.
With version 15 the above descriptors can draw severity indication enabling wider use of this functionality.
Severity icon overlap
Whether you are using the built in symbol icons to indicate specific state on a descriptor, or your own custom symbols, you may wish to adjust the distance from the descriptor.
This can be done by setting the Icon overlap (x,y), to specify how much the state icons should overlap with the descriptor itself.
Please note that the Icon overlap setting is Station wide, meaning it applies to all descriptors in the Project with severity/state indication icons.
Hide Severity icon/frame indication
Having added support for severity icons and frame for additional descriptors, will perhaps result in severity indication on navigation buttons or other places, where the indication is unwanted. To avoid this, you will now be able to hide severity indication, while maintaining the alarm indication on the descriptor.
Note: If your IGSS 15 installation does not include the above feature please run IGSS Update.
