    Frage Disable Alarm Functions at Nighttime

    Hi,

    We have multiple alarms with limit values and reaction matrix from different variables. And using some functions/scripts in the cases if the limit values are violated. Like sending e-mail messages and playing alarm sounds. 

    I want to disable these alarms and reactions at the nighttime. However when I use functions like "activate/deactivate alarm/event groups/classes", alarms only disappeared from the ALM/CEL list. But the functions are still executed. (I heard the alarm sound and received e-mail)

    I also tried -application functions- like "Functions active/inactive at limit values". As I understand, this function disables whole limit values in Runtime. But it doesn't change anything. Limits are still active. (Nothing is changing in zenon6.ini file also)

    Our Zenon Version is 8.10 SP0 Build66325 64Bit

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I suggest to use the "activate/deactivate Message Control" function.
    - You can use the scheduler or time control to trigger the functions at specific times.
    - But keep in mind that the message control will be active at start of runtime by default.
     -> This can be changed in the settings: Project -> Message Control

    If that does not give the desired result, you should contact your local support to analyze this in more detail.

    BR,
    Georg

    If only, there was an option in function properties to prevent the specific functions from executing. For example by a boolean variable. Not just only get rid of messages but also for other types of functions.

    Thank you.
