Since Wonderware’s inception, LogMate has collected alarm and event data from InTouch. In the early years, data was obtained using a serial port connection. Later Wonderware created alarm and event csv files to be read by LogMate’s ASCII File port. More recently Wonderware InTouch developed a SQL Server database through the WWALMDB database which is created by the Alarm DB logger application (same as Archestra). This data is updated in real-time to LogMate by using a Capture OLEDB port. Optionally, the operator and tracking change events can be included.
InTouch alarm configuration is available through an exported set of csv files. The LogMate KB Agent can be configured to import and provide a management of change process to review subsequent changes to the InTouch alarm system. Both the file export in InTouch and the KB Agent also can be scheduled to automatically import records for user review in TiPSView.
