Win911 Alarm Notification reduces response times to critical production events by extending automation alarm capability using technologies such as SMS and email.
Win-911 allows selective alarms to be sent via SMS or Smartphone messaging from a SCADA or PLC when different limits occur or if for example a planned maintenance run hours event is triggered for key equipment.



Win911 is a easy to implement and feature rich solution that uses a standard GSM modem from a South African service provider such as Vodacom, MTN or Cell C. To further reduce configuration effort Win-911 provides direct connect natively supporting leading SCADA applications;

  • Wonderware ArchestrA and InTouch (Direct Connect)
  • Rockwell RSView and FactoryTalk (Direct Connect)
  • GE Intelligent Platforms' Proficy iFIX (Direct Connect)
  • OPC and DDE Servers


The direct connection allows Win911 to work with alarms that are configured in your SCADA. Your SCADA system determines the alarm, WIN-911 does the remote alarm notification, and users can acknowledge the alarms in your SCADA locally or by phone (using Win911).



Example applications

i) Monitoring of key resources such as mine ventilation, utilities, and power trips.
ii) Provide alarming for remote locations that are not on the plant network or existing automation infrastructure.
iii) Maintenance call-out triggered automatically or manually by line operators, routed based on predefined schedule.
iv) Alert production management of excessive downtime resulting in significant production losses.


i) Better utilisation of electrical and maintenance support staff.
ii) Improve support staff response time to prevent events that can result in significant damage or production loss.
iii) Proactively involve remote resources objectively using SMS, email or voice telephony.
iv) Automatically escalate critical alarms or conditions allowing losses to be avoided.
