The ISA-18.2 committee recently voted to approve ISA-TR18.2.3 Basic Alarm Design. This technical report is designed to provide guidance, rationale, and examples on the Basic Alarm Design process as described in ISA-18.2, Clause 10. It covers the selection of alarm attributes, including types, deadbands, and delay times. “Publication of this technical report will help speed adoption of the ISA-18.2 standard,” said Todd Stauffer, exida Director of Alarm Management Services, and co-chair for TR3. “Technical reports supplement the requirements and recommendations of the standard (the “what”) with guidance on best practices and application examples (the “how”).”
