iSIC alarms are used to change the functionality of the data logger based on parameter inputs, such as changing sample and log intervals based on a particular logged reading. Open iChart with the current project. Click Setup.
In the Setup Device window, click the iSIC Alarm tab.
Place a check in the “Enable iSIC Alarm” check box. Click Add to enable an alarm condition, such as level above 0.20 feet as shown below.
Click the Edit button and select the alarm type. Options include:
- For any iSIC type: Changing the sample and log interval
- For a 3100-iSIC AT&T/Cingular Raven XT 2G modem: Sending an SMS message or SMTP email
When finished setting up the alarm, click Update iSIC to send the configuration to the data logger.
Note: iSIC alarm conditions are evaluated each sample interval. For example, if a data logger is set to sample every 60 minutes under normal conditions, and a Change log interval alarm is selected, it will check the alarm condition every 60 minutes to determine if it should switch to the different interval.
