    How to limit alarm notifications

    I have alarms set up when my vodka reservoir and Acropower reservoir need to be refilled. If I'm not ready with a new refill of vodka or Acropower the alarm continues to send me text messages and emails until the float switch in either affected container changes state from Closed to Open. Is there a way to set up a VO tied to the float switches that could be limited as to how long it stays on and that is included in the email alarms output to trigger an alarm one time? The on time of the VO would be limited to enough time to send out the alarm notice and then changed to off. Let me know what is possible and the programming to accomplish this. Thanks for the help.

    Yes. You would create a VO in this basic form

    StopAlm
    Set OFF
    If Switchname CLOSED Then ON
    Defer 005:00 Then ON


    In you email add

    If Output StopAlm = ON Then OFF

    Directly below the switches you want to supress


    Do note that if this becomes true it will supress anything above it in the code, so you either need to make those the very first alarms or you need a second VO with code like this

    SkimFull
    Set OFF
    If Switchname CLOSED Then ON
    If Output StopAlm = ON Then OFF

    And then replace the switch lines in your email with

    If Output SkimFull = ON Then ON

    I set up the VO and added the programming lines. Would you please review and advise if there are too many Defer statements? I think I only need one.

    Set OFF
    If AcroPL CLOSED Then ON
    Defer 005:00 Then ON
    If VSVFil CLOSED Then ON
    Defer 005:00 Then ON
    If skmFul OPEN Then ON
    Defer 005:00 Then ON

    You can only use one defer. Remove two of them and leave the last one.
