This object contains attributes common to many Metasys system objects. This section includes attributes of the Focus/Configuration tab, the Diagnostics tab (if applicable), and any other tab specific only to this object. See the Object and Feature Tabs section for information on the attributes that appear on the other tabs of this object (for example, the Hardware and Options tab appear on point objects).
|Name / View Group
Attribute ID Writable (W) Configurable (C)
|Elapsed Active Time -- Engineering Values
33 W C
Represents the accumulated number of seconds Preset Value is Active since the Elapsed Active Time attribute was most recently set to zero. This attribute value updates automatically a minimum of once a day.
|Active Time Reset -- Engineering Values
Represents the last date and time Elapsed Active Time was set to a zero value. If either Elapsed Active Time or Time of Active Time Reset is present, all are present.
|State Count Reset -- Engineering Values
Represents the date and time the COS Count attribute was most recently set to a zero value. If COS Time or Change of State Count is present, both are present.
|COS Count -- Engineering Values
Represents the number of times the Present Value attribute changes state since the COS Count attribute was most recently set to zero. A change of state is any event that alters Present Value. This attribute persists in the archive.
|COS Time -- Engineering Values
Represents the date and time at which the most recent change of state occurred. A change of state is any event that alters the Present Value attribute. When Out of Service is False, a change to the Polarity attribute alters Present Value and is considered a change of state. When Out of Service is True, changes to Polarity do not cause changes of state.
|States Text -- Display
931 W C
|Indicates the displayed strings for the Present Value.
|Device Type -- BACnet
31 W C
|Contains a description of the physical device connected to the object.
|Use Remote Alarming -- BACnet
853 W C
When the attribute Intrinsic Alarming Defined is set to True, determines where alarms for the object originate. If the remote integrated object contains attributes for originating alarms, then Use Remote Alarming defaults to True, causing the local mapper object to accept alarms from the remote integrated object that are routed to the NxE. If the remote integrated object does not contain attributes for originating alarms, then Use Remote Alarming defaults to False causing the local mapper object to originate alarms. When Use Remote Alarming is false, any alarms from the remote integrated object are ignored at the NxE. If the value of Use Remote Alarming is changed, a restart of the NxE may be required to assure correct operation. This attribute applies only to BACnet integrations.
|Intrinsic Alarming Defined -- BACnet
569 W C
|Enables the BACnet Intrinsic Alarming feature in the object and the definition of related attributes.
