Range/Level Alarms

The Range Alarms feature allows High Range Alarm and Low Range Alarm levels to be overlaid onto a line graph.

Instructions relating to High and Low Range Alarms in this Section also apply, in their entirety, to High High and Low Low Range Alarms.

Note:To use this feature, Range Alarm levels will first need to be set.
See the Alarms section for information on how to set alarms.

Overlaying Range Alarm Levels on a Graph

Check the Show High And Low Thresholds box on the bottom right-hand side of the Chart View window. See Figure 1093 below:

Figure 1093

High-Low Threshold Lines2

The High Range Alarm and Low Range Alarm (if set from the Alarm Settings window) Thresholds are overlaid on the line graph, giving a clear visual indication of whether there has been an excursion either above or below the High and Low Range Alarm settings. See Figure 1094 below:

Figure 1094

High-Low Thresholds Box3

For Multi-Channel Sensors, High Range Alarm and Low Range Alarm Thresholds for each data series are overlain on the line graph, if defined for the channel, giving a clear visual indication of whether there has been an excursion either above or below the Upper or Lower Range Alarm settings. See Figure 1095 below:

Figure 1095

High-Low Thresholds Multiple Channels

The same procedure applies to overlaying High High and Low Low Thresholds.

Fill Thresholds

To highlight the areas of the graph outside either the High Range Alarm and Low Range Alarm values:

Check both the Show High And Low Thresholds and Fill Thresholds boxes on the bottom right-hand side of the Chart View window. See Figure 1096 below:

Figure 1096

Alarm Thresholds Highlighted2

The Chart View window is displayed with the areas outside the High Range Alarm and Low Range Alarm values shaded in contrasting colours.colorSee Figure 1097 below:

Clearing Range Alarm Overlays from a Graph

Uncheck the Show High And Low Thresholds box on the bottom right-hand side of the Chart View window. See Figure 1095 above.
