CWS is releasing a new alarm feature on the Weather Display. For all real and calculated parameters, users can select upper and lower limits which trigger audible and visual alarm. A visual green circle graphic turns red when alarm conditions are present. An audible beeping alarm sounds. The audible alarm can be manually dismissed or will automatically shut off when a secondary user defined limit is reached.
This feature has been developed in conjunction with CWS customer the Dalles Dam on the Columbia River. The weather display is located in the control operator’s office. Monitoring wind speed is critical. When a certain limit is reached, some operations are curtailed.
