GE MARK VI Cimplicity Alarm

Hi there,

We're working in our GE MARK VI CIMPLICITY Alarm program on how to assign wav file audible alarm on each alarm/trip in our system. However, we can't hear the alarm goes off when the alarm/trip triggers. Also, the sound is too short. We would like to know how we can prolong the sounds until the operators acknowledge it. We hope you guys can help us.

Thank you!
I am out of town right now and do not have access to an HMI. I will provide alarm sound manager settings early next week. I prefer a speaker tone to a .wav file. much simpler.

If you have already tried the default tone setting in alarm sound manager, the problem is the default frequency is wrong. Try 3000 hertz.
Following a failure of the BB4 vibration sensor support in bearing 4 of an MS5002 Frame 5 turbine, we found that only the alarm was going up in the SOE and no information on the trip.Knowing that an alarm alone cannot cause a trip, we want to feed back the trip information by activating the
BB4 vibration in the SOE.

Remark:The machine is controlled by a Mark VIe

Do you have any suggestions?

No. I don’t do private messages. The beauty of Workd Wide Web forums is that many people can see the questions and answers and benefit from the exchange. Using private messages, only one person benefits. And I would answer the same questions repeatedly. Here on every thread is available at any time for any one to read and benefit from.

Based on your statements in your first post above, it’s not likely we will be able to help you do what you seem to be asking. SOEs are for logic signals only; alarms are logic signals. Vibration signals are analog signals and when the magnitude of an analog signal exceeds a value (high or low in some cases) then a logic signal is “set” which generates an alarm.

A property configured Mark* would be storing the values of vibration signals in the Trip Log or Trip History function for review and analysis. It’s NOT a great function but it’s what there is available in the Mark*.

There’s nothing more to be said in this thread. It’s not difficult and it doesn’t cost anything to open it new thread. This is a free forum. It is a technical forum, and opening a new thread may seem difficult with all the choices—but just do your best. A LOT of questions don’t belong in the areas they are posted in but we answer them anyway. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake when opening a thread; it’s not a test and you aren’t being graded and you won’t fail.
