With T/Mon's Derived Controls feature, you can use alarm inputs to trigger automatic control relay actions. Both ordinary and Derived Alarms can be used as Derived Control inputs.
For example, you could configure T/Mon to automatically start a remote site generator if there's a low battery alarm. Or a Derived Alarm signaling that the battery is low AND the generator is down could trigger an automatic page to a service tech.
A Derived Alarm can even tell you when events DON'T happen. Why is this useful?
Let's suppose a generator self-test is supposed to happen every Tuesday at 3 A.M. You don't want to be notified every time a successful self-test happens - that's a nuisance alarm that your staff will ignore, and no one will notice if the weekly notification doesn't come.
But you can create a Derived Alarm that will be triggered only when the self-test doesn't happen on schedule - so you get the most useful information when you need it.
