Alarm management for process monitoring

With the new CombiSeries, Baumer has developed tailor-made alarm management for the process industry. They easy-to-handle measuring instruments with flexibly programmable displays provide for new practical options in process monitoring. With the CombiPress pressure gauge and CombiTemp temperature gauge, Baumer has introduced the first two products of this series which can optionally be configured with a CombiView display.
Practical traffic light principle in Baumer CombiView:
The background color "red" indicates measuring values that call for fast intervention
The Baumer CombiView displays provide an often helpful overview of the current status of individual processes directly on site. The measuring values do not have to be analyzed first because the display indicates at a glance whether the preset measuring values are exceeded and immediate intervention is required.

In practice the principle of the Baumer CombiView is similar to a traffic light circuit: A clear signal indicates whether there is a need for action. The background color "red" is suitable e.g. for values that call for fast intervention. A green background could signal proper operation. One look is all you need to see that everything is in order at a gauge. The user can individually select and set his indication preferences himself.

The representations on the display can also be adapted as required or according to the respective company's usage. Digital as well as analog representation of the values is possible, e.g. as a scale with pointer, bar or column diagram. Because the display can be rotated in two axes by up to 360°, it is visible from almost any location thanks to the housing diameter of 80 mm.
