Alarm escalation with
the intelligent alarm system
Whereas years ago it was merely a matter of automatically recording alarms and simply forwarding fault messages, today’s requirements have increased considerably. The market demands a flexible reporting system that reaches the right contact persons in the company in a targeted manner using different and modern transmission media. An efficient alarm escalation ensuring a fast and reliable response is therefore a top priority in order to avoid production downtimes and plant shutdowns.
With AIP, we have developed a solution that is precisely tailored to these requirements. The alarm portal closes the gap between the occurrence and reporting of a critical event and ensures reliable alerting and targeted notification of the relevant addressees in your company. Thanks to the automatic alarm escalation, alarms reach the appropriate recipients immediately and everywhere – via e-mail, SMS, voice message, audio, messenger or pager. In this way, the right decisions can be made in the shortest possible time to protect your plant from failures and downtimes.
AIP fits seamlessly into the IT architecture of your company. Secure communication, flexible configuration and multiple redundancy are the cornerstones of the concept.

LTE modem for AIP applications
Edge AIP is the hardware platform (incl. an Edge AIP application) for sending SMS and e-mail via AIP and enables easy access to Internet and SMS services via the mobile network. The operating system on the Edge AIP is OpenWrt, which uses “LuCI” as the web interface. The modem (Edge AIP) is stored in the AIP as a transmission medium.
To start operation, a SIM card of a mobile network operator activated for packet services (GPRS, UMTS, HSPA or LTE) and sufficiently stable reception are required.
