Let's look at dynamic alert icons. Any time a vibration sample exceeds an alarm, or warning, threshold in one or more monitoring bands, an alert is generated and presented as an alarm icon, or warning icon on the monitoring band, monitoring location, machine and facility levels in the navigation tree. If there are multiple alerts triggered at the same level of the navigation tree, the higher level will propagate up the tree to the next level.
The alert icons are dynamic and only show the alert level of the most recent vibration sample. As such, if the machine temporarily exceeds a threshold vibration level and then returns to normal operation, the alert icon will show up briefly and then go away. In this way, the alert icons on the navigation tree always give you a snap shot of the current state of your monitored equipment.
