The MSV object attributes represent the desired state of one or more physical outputs or processes of the device in which the object resides. The actual functions associated with a particular state are determined locally (not part of protocol). Present Value (Appears as O1 for Inputs and I1 for Outputs) represents the state with a number and States Text associates a description with each state.
This object allows you to hold a multistate value for other objects to reference. In the tool, an Multistate Value may be created as part of an SAB device to provide a multistate data points from that device (for example, Fan Speed Override from the Network Sensor) or a multistate data value sent to that device (for example, Fan Speed Status and Occupancy Status for the Network Sensor).
