Table 1. Object Attributes

Name

The Name attribute 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.

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. For integrated N1 network objects, the name defaults to the System.Object Name in the NCM.

Example: ConferenceCenter-Room2-LightingSchedule

The Name attribute allows up to 400 characters, but 40 or less is best for the display layout.

Name is a common object attribute; for more information, see Common Object Attributes.

Description

The Description attribute contains a user-defined description of the object. The Description attribute allows up to 40 characters before Release 8.0 and up to 64 characters at Release 8.0 and later, but is not required. Description is a common object attribute; for more information, see stops the object from commanding the referenced attributes. Setting the Enabled attribute to False does not change the Out of Service attribute.Common Object Attributes.

Object Type

stops the object from commanding the referenced attributes.The Object Type attribute indicates the type of object as displayed in the Metasys software and as exposed to a BACnet network. The Object type of the Schedule object is Schedule. The Schedule object is a standard BACnet schedule object and conforms to the BACnet protocol 135-2004 specification. Object Type is a common object attribute; for more information, see Common Object Attributes.

Authorization Category

The Authorization Category attribute classifies the object by the category of system or equipment that it monitors to aid in the determination of user access privileges and alarm routing.

Examples: HVAC, Fire, Security

Table 2. Status Attributes

Enabled

Setting the Enabled attribute to False stops the object from updating its Present Value and

Status Flags

  • In Alarm: This flag is always False for the Schedule object.

    Fault: False means that the Reliability attribute is reliable, otherwise the flag is True.

  • Overridden: This flag is always False for the Schedule object.
  • Out of Service: True means that the Out of Service attribute is also True, otherwise the flag is False.

Reliability

The Reliability attribute indicates the reliability of the object. If there are data type mismatches in the weekly schedule, exception schedules, or Default Schedule Command, the object reports that it is unreliable. This attribute does not appear in the SCT.

Out of Service

When True, the object no longer updates the Present Value itself. This attribute does not appear in the SCT.

Note: Disabling the object does not impact the ability to put the Schedule Out Of Service and write to its Present Value and thus to its Outputs.

Error Status

The Error Status attribute indicates whether the Present Value was successfully written to the list of property values in the Scheduled Items list. The Error Status displays Ok if the object was able to send its latest Present Value to every object in the Scheduled Items list. Otherwise, the Error Status displays the error of the first failed command. See the status log in the Scheduled Items view for the status for each attempted command. This attribute does not appear in the SCT, and does not appear for mapped third-party schedules.

Alarm State

The Alarm State attribute indicates that the object transitioned into alarm or unreliable conditions. This attribute does not appear in the SCT.

Table 3. Engineering Values Attributes

Item Reference

The Item Reference attribute contains a unique reference name for the object that is the full path name of the object through the All Items navigation tree using the unique identifier you specified when you manually created the object. Item Reference is a common object attribute; for more information, see Common Object Attributes.

Version

The Version attribute displays the version number of the object software code. Version is a common object attribute; for more information, see Common Object Attributes.

Table 4. Execution Attributes

Execution Priority

The Execution Priority attribute indicates the relative importance of performing the function of the object within the device.

Priority for Writing

The Priority for Writing attribute defines the priority at which the referenced attributes are commanded. Seven is the highest priority and 16 is the lowest supported by the Schedule object, with the default of 15.

Note: We do not recommend using priorities 7 or 8 as they may interfere with the operator override functionality.
