GE MARK VI Cimplicity Alarm
GE MARK VI CIMPLICITY ALARM. Audible alarm will not sounds off when alarm triggers. Audible alarm is too short.

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!


What have you done to try to make the alarm sound work, and what were the results?

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.
