which areas are not being monitored. There are eight modules that can be selected and each module monitors eight
areas. Table 1-2 provides a module to area association.
The application software continuously receives updated status information for each area which is processed for display
and printing. If status changes have occurred, an audible alarm is given and the display screens are updated. The type
of status change can be determined by looking at the display screen and is acknowledged by the operator. Status
changes that have not been acknowledged are displayed by flashing text.

operator or supervisor and each display screen provides a summary of the system status. Each display screen is
selected by pressing the function key associated with the display screen. Function keys that control selection of display
screens are as follows:
<F4> ................Monitor Area Screen
