View Full Version : Ac3 alarm problem

I am getting alarms on my AC3 and can't figure out why I am getting alarms.

Here is how the "relevant" programming is set up:

Current Status is:

Jan 19 2012 23:57:41

Temp pH ORP

76.4 8.14 226

TmpA pHA1 ORPA

76.6 2.34 347

Please Note: ALARMS ARE ONLY SET FOR TEMP, PH, ORP...NOT FOR TEMPA, PH1 or ORPA

If Time > 00:00 Then ALM OFF

If pH > 08.60 Then ALM ON

If pH < 07.95 Then ALM ON

If ORP > 450 Then ALM ON

If ORP < 125 Then ALM ON

If Temp < 74.0 Then ALM ON

If Temp > 79.0 Then ALM ON

If Temp > 76.5 Then HT1 OFF

If Temp < 75.5 Then HT1 ON

If Temp > 75.5 Then HT2 OFF

If Temp < 74.0 Then HT2 ON

Any Ideas?

It is possible that one of the probes is bumping to the error value for a split second; not long enough to show on logs but it only takes a fraction of a second for it to trigger an email. That would be my guess.

I went through and turned off the ORP probe, then the PH Probe, etc. After turning each off, I then turned the alarm back to auto and still got alarms, even with both probes turned off. I did notice that the ORP probe probably needs to be replaced because it seems "locked" in position. But I still received Alarms with it turned off. This all started when I was trying to calibrate the ORP probe...not sure why...

Is ALM set to Manual ON instead of Auto?

Alarm is set to Auto.

I had the same problem and never got it working. I would go days without an alert and then all of a sudden I would get 20 alerts. I worked with curt but never resolved it so I ended up turning alerts off.

I also have an apex and my favorite feature is that it lets you know what triggered the alert which is very helpful. Good luck and if all else fails upgrade to an Apex. =)
