Alarm annunciator for ELCON
I have designed and developed this software in accordance
with a requirement specification which was produced by BPI and some
users. The software was required to read a configuration file defining
the points to be monitored, collect information from the main
database at fixed intervals and reflect
the alarm state of the points on a
or compatible terminal, or via a high current parallel I/O card to a
traditional CONLOG alarm panel. During the execution of this project, I have
contributed to the Engineering Department's overall efficiency, by adding an
terminal control and a
file handling library for processing text files, including many
string handling and parsing routines.
Retrofit FEP comms driver
The serial asynchronous comms driver written for the FEP was
designed to be more efficient and have lower overhead than the
standard RSX driver. Some clients requested this retrofit as
their application did not warrant a full FEP implementation. My
task was to retrofit the stand alone
system to operate with the FEP driver and implement some of the FEP
scheduling and tuning techniques.
