Alarms from Vista to third party system.

Issue

Is it possible to monitor TAC Vista 5.1.x active alarms in
some third party system?

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

TAC Vista 5.1.x

Cause

The alarms in Vista is saved in a text file in the Vista database. But reading this file is not a good way for a third party system to get the active alarms.
A better way is to use OPC.

Resolution

Install the Vista OPC server and use a OPC client to get the alarms from Vista in to a third party system.
