Alarm triggers are part of the overarching feature Alarming. With alarm triggers you can create custom triggers to receive alarms of. Useful to be informed about important machine events. For example when the temperature exceeds 60°C, the operating hours exceed 1000 hours, the machine is in emergency stop, or any other situation you would like to be notified about.
When the trigger condition is met, you will receive an alarm once. You will receive an alarm again, once, the next time the trigger condition becomes true. Meaning the trigger condition first needs to become false. In the example above you receive an alarm when the temperature exceeds 60°C, which happens twice.
