Issues Issues Bus Issues Menu Item   Main Menu item. Select to see quantity, history, and history details of Issues.
Issues Issues Quantity of Issues recorded   Quantity of potential Issues discovered by the FIT.
Issues Online Device Came Online   Most current Issue (no leading number). In this case, a controller came on line after initial FIT token loop was complete.
Issues n Issue Type Historical Issue number and Type   Where n represents a historical issue, Issue Type is either Online, Offline, Badframe, ChrFrame, 2ndTkn or EOL>2
Issues TKN Token   Represents the Token (TKN) passing from one address to the next.
Issues Badframe Bad Data Received   Bad Data Received. Bad MS/TP frame. Invalid MS/TP header CRC or data CRC.
Issues ChrFrame Character Framing Error   Characters are transmitted in frames. If a frame is too long or short, a framing error occurs.
Issues 2ndTkn Token Re-transmitted.   A device handed off the token, but no transmission seen. the TKN is re-transmitted.
Issues Offline Device went offline.   This device was online, received a PFM, and did not reply to it.
Issues EOL>2 >2 EOL Switches are On   More than two devices with EOL switch ON.
Note: This is all EOL switches on ALL bus segments for connected bus.
Monitor Monitor Monitor Traffic on Bus   Main Menu item Monitor Bus. Selecting Monitor puts the FIT in a listen-only mode.
Monitor Monitor Bus Listen to bus communications   Used to listen to bus traffic and report bus statistics.
Monitor Offline There is no token passing   The FIT is listening to the Bus, but no token is passing. The bus is in an idle state.
Monitor Dev Quantity of Addresses Found   Qty of Addresses discovered by the FIT
Monitor Adr Address of current device   Address reported by the controller
Monitor BitVolts Bit Volts Reading at Address   Communication Voltage reported by the selected Address.
Monitor TxTkn Tokens Sent by Address   Displays the number of Token Frames the device transmits. In MS/TP, each master device passes a logical token to the next device during normal operation. Only the master device currently holding the token is allowed to initiate a message, thus the number of Token Frames sent or received should be large. Normally, the number of Token Frames received should be almost the same as the number of Token Frames transmitted.
Monitor DevId Device ID at Address X Device ID when an I-Am is seen in a capture (trigger with Who-Is) or -1 if not seen.
Monitor RxTkn Tokens Received by Address X Displays the number of Token Frames the device receives. In MS/TP, each master device passes a logical token to the next device during normal operation. Only the master device currently holding the token is allowed to initiate a message; thus, the number of Token Frames sent or received is large. Normally the number of Token Frames received should be almost the same as the number of Token Frames transmitted.
Monitor PFM Poll For Master by Address X Displays the number of PFM frames sent by the device. In normal operation on a clean network, only the bus supervisor (MAC address 0) and the highest numbered master device on the network is sending PFM frames. These frames are used to discover other devices on the network.
Monitor RPM Reply To PFM by Address X Counts the number of Reply to PFM frames the device transmits. On a clean network during normal operation, only one Reply to PFM frame needs to be sent when the device first comes online. These frames are used to announce the presence of other devices on the network.
Monitor Postpd Reply Postponed by Address X Counts the number of data frames received at the device that requires an immediate reply where this device requests additional time to prepare the reply. This may happen normally if the reply involves a large amount of data. It may also indicate that this device is overloaded.
Monitor TstReq Test Request X Displays the number of Test Request Frames the device transmits. Test Request Frames are a normal part of bus analysis, but should not be sent during normal operation. A Test Response Frame should be received in response to each test Request Frame sent to an online device. Test Request Frames may also be sent to offline devices where no response is received.
Monitor TstRsp Test Response X Displays the number of Test Response Frames transmitted by this MS/TP port. Test Response Frames are a normal part of bus analysis, but should not be sent during normal operation. A Test Response Frame should be sent in response to each Test Request Frame received.
Monitor DER Data Expecting Reply X Displays the number of data frames sent by the device that requires an immediate reply from the destination device. This value includes proprietary frames that have been sent and are expecting a reply.
Monitor DNER Data Not Expecting Reply X Displays the number of data frames sent by the device that do not require an immediate reply. This value includes proprietary frames that have been sent and received a reply.
Monitor Treply Time to Reply X Max milliseconds (ms) to reply with token after receiving a token. Must be <25 ms.
Monitor Tder Response Time to DER X Max ms to respond to a DataExpectingReply. Must be <250 ms.
Monitor Tpostp Response Time Postponed X Max ms to respond to DataExpectingReply with ReplyPostponed. Must be <250 ms.
Monitor Tusage Total Wait RPFM X Max ms waits for a ReplyToPollForMaster or Token retry. Must be >20ms and <100ms.
Monitor Trpfm Response Time PFM X Max ms to respond to PFM with RPFM. Must be <25 ms.
Monitor Retry Retries X Displays the number of times the device tried to pass a token as the next node did not start using it within the time allowed by BACnet protocol.
Monitor MaxMst Max Master X Highest destination address during PFM. Default is 127. Normally, when all controllers have power and a ScanBus is executed, the address seen listed is the next address in the loop (Address 10 passed to Address 11, so it will show 11).
Monitor MaxFrm Max info Frames X Maximum number of frames from this address.
Monitor Npoll Tokens between PFM X Number of Tokens between Poll-For-Master.
Monitor Self Sent to Self X Number of Tokens sent to self.
Monitor Stats Bus Statistics Menu Item X This menu item provides overall bus statistical information.
Monitor LoopTime Loop Time X Indicates how much time passes between the periods when the device allows initiation of messages on the network. This time is a strong indicator of network performance and is associated strongly with the amount of traffic or errors on the network. Shorter times indicate a more responsive network. Longer times indicate an increasingly busy and slow network.
Monitor PcktErrs Packet Errors X Counts errors detected in the data portion of data frames sent to the device. Many data frames are used only for protocol control and do not contain a data portion, and thus cannot have Data CRC Errors. The Header CRC Errors check must be successful before the device attempts a Data CRC check. This attribute supplies an error count for the Bus Health Index attribute.

Some possible reasons are bus exposure to noise or poor wiring.

Monitor CharErrs Character Errors X Counts the number of errors detected in the individual data bytes received by the device. A framing error occurs when the device receives a stop bit in the wrong state. This attribute supplies an error count for the Bus Health Index attribute. Framing errors are usually caused by electrical noise on the bus, message collisions, incorrect baud rate settings, bus wiring or termination errors, or devices that are not operating within the BACnet specified timing. Framing errors generally cause CRC errors since the frame has been corrupted.
Monitor Baudrate Communication Baud Rate X The speed at which controllers are communicating. MS/TP is normally 38,400 bits per second (bps).
Monitor Chrs/Sec Characters per Second X The number of characters in the frames currently being transmitted per second.
Monitor Over Run Over Run of Data X Displays the number of times the MS/TP port hardware loses received data because the device is too slow in reading the data. An overrun error occurs when the hardware receives a byte before it moves the prior byte to a buffer.
Monitor Packets Number of Packets X A running total of the number of packets transmitted while the FIT has been connected.
Monitor Chars Number of Characters X Indicates the number of data bytes received by the FIT. This number includes all messages from all devices.
