Contains a freely definable user-friendly Name for the object that is independent of the Item Reference or the location of the object in the physical network. The Name is used as the label in the All Items navigation tree. The Name is shown in alarm reports, the event and audit viewers, and in summaries. The Name does not need to be unique to the site unless the name is used as the BACnet Object Name. When the name is used as the BACnet Object Name, it must be unique among the BACnet Object Names in the device (if it is not a Device object) or unique among the other device objects (if it is a Device object).

The Name defaults to the object identifier you used during manual object creation, but can be edited later. For integrated BACnet objects, the name defaults to the BACnet Object Name in the remote BACnet device.

Example: ConferenceCenter-Room2-SpaceSetPoint

For devices, both the Computer Name and Name attributes default to the object identifier you used during manual object creation. But, do not confuse the Computer Name attribute with the Name attribute. Changing the supervisory device name attribute does not impact the object references or network communication with other devices on the site.

Changing the Computer Name online breaks any existing references between the supervisory device object and other objects on the site, and may break the existing network connection to other devices on the network. We do not recommend changing the Computer Name online. If you change the Computer Name attribute in the BCT (right-click the supervisory device in the navigation tree and select Rename), both the Computer Name and Name attributes are changed to the new name you select. The Item Reference then updates to show the new Computer Name.
