Cause

The basic text messages do not include the alarm date and time, this is a site requirement..

Resolution

To change the message format, configure as follows:

1 - Using the RAM Console, select "Configuration" and the required "Action".

2 - Edit the Action, and select "Messages".

3 - Choose the "Advanced" option, and then "Edit Script".

4 - Choose "File" and then "Open File", browse to the location of the script file you want to open. An example script file can be uploaded from here.

5 - The screen capture below shows part of the script editor with the script file opened.

This script will provide an alarm message which takes the following form.

Message No (This cannot be de-configured), Alarm Priority, Alarm Date / Time, Mnemonic, and Value (i.e. Plant On / Plant Off etc.).

The alarm cleared message is slightly different.

Message No (This cannot be de-configured), Alarm Date / Time, Mnemonic, and Value (i.e. Plant On / Plant Off etc.).
