The Alarm Stack provides a complete list of Alarm and Event Signals available for Processing.

Incoming Signals are interpreted by SPA and then sent to the Alarm Stack which inserts them into a waiting list based on their Priority Level.

 

There are many times when a User needs access to the Alarm Stack for informational purposes, but not to actually Process Alarm Signals.

That User may, in fact, not even be located in the Central Station itself.

As an example, a Manager may simply want to see the current situation in the Central Station.

 

The stand-alone MKS Alarm Stack application is provided for this purpose.

 

The MKS Alarm Stack program is (usually) located at C:\Program Files\MKS\MKMS\ (or if running 64bit Windows, C:\Program Files(x86)\MKS\MKMS\ ), and is named MKSAlarmStack.exe.

Note: Although the application is usually located on your C: drive, it may instead have been installed on a File Server Drive.

If you are connected to a Network, ask your System Administrator for the proper drive location of the application.

As recommended in Getting Started, create a shortcut for this application and place it in your MKMS folder on your Desktop for quick access later.
