Table 1. Control Tab Status Colors and Icons

Status Color

Appears in Mode

Description

White ()

All modes

Indicates a self-contained logic block for which the system does not allow you to view the logic.

Tan ()

All modes

Indicates a module that contains logic that you can view and edit. You can use the right-click menu to edit or view logic for this type of module.

Magenta ()

All modes

Shows the involvement of other modules to the selected Output module.

Orange ()

Commissioning mode

In Commissioning mode, indicates when the software value does not match the hardware value of the item. In Commissioning mode, the tool displays two values (does not apply to network inputs or network outputs):

  • The first value is the software value, including units.
  • The second value is the hardware value, including units.

These two values may be different if the object is commanded at a priority higher than that of the control logic or if the device is offline (for example, an I/O Module that is offline).

Deep Blue Border ()

All modes

Indicates the selected module.

Temporary Blue 1 ()

Configuration and Simulation modes

Indicates a single value change has occurred in the device's inputs, outputs, or modules.
Temporary Yellow1 ()

Configuration and Simulation modes

Indicates a second consecutive value change has occurred for the device's inputs, outputs, or modules.
Temporary Red1 ()

Configuration and Simulation modes

Indicates a third consecutive value change has occurred for the device's inputs, outputs, or modules.
Note:

After the third stage has been reached, all subsequent consecutive changes continue to display red.

(Yellow Triangle)

All modes

Indicates an issue or possible misconfiguration with the block.

Hovering over the block provides a tooltip with the reason the icon is appearing. See Block Flags.

(Green Triangle) 2

All modes

Identifies a module that has been modified by a user.

If the changes were made in Configuration mode, this icon appears directly to the left of the module name (first row). If the changes were made in Simulation or Commissioning mode, the green triangle appears directly to the left of the module’s Default Element value (second row).

Note: This icon only appears on modules that support the user-modified attribute (tan blocks). User-modified modules cannot be upgraded.2

(Alarm)

All modes

Identifies a module that has an alarm defined.

(Schedule)

All modes

Identifies a module that has a schedule defined.

(Trend)

All modes

Identifies a module that has a trend defined.

(Network Sensor) 3

All modes

Identifies that the input or output is assigned to a Network Sensor (Network Duct Sensors, Network Zone Sensors, or Network CO2 Sensors).

(Wireless Ethernet Sensor)

All modes

Identifies that the input or output is assigned to a wireless sensor and has a wireless Ethernet signal.

(VSD)

All modes

Identifies that the input or output is assigned to an Eaton Variable Speed Drive (also serves a Variable Frequency Drive [VFD]).

(Peer to Peer)

All modes

Identifies if the input or output is set up for peer-to-peer connections.

(Field Controller)3

All modes

Identifies that the input or output is assigned to a Field Controller.

(I/O Module)3

All modes

Identifies that the input or output is assigned to an I/O module.

1 Color intensity fades over a series of refresh cycles as the value changes stop.
2 The following conditions change the user-modified flag and prevent the module from being upgraded: new connections, new blocks, deleted blocks, modified descendent activity, changes to block attributes (excluding BACnet Exposed, Default Element, Standard Name, Description, User Name, Exposed Ports List, and State Text).
3 Device and Port label information appears after the module name for assigned Inputs and Outputs.
