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)
|Min Off Time -- Engineering Values
66 W C
Represents the fewest number of seconds Present Value remains in the Inactive state after entering the Inactive state.
|Min On Time -- Engineering Values
67 W C
|Represents the fewest number of seconds Present Value remains in the Active state after entering the Active state.
|Heavy Equip Delay -- Engineering Values
516 W C
Indicates the amount of time that this output point adds to the Accumulated Delay attribute of the Heavy Equipment Controller (HEC) object when this point is started. The next output point is delayed by that amount of time of the HEC Accumulated Delay is not already decremented to zero.
The NAE device’s five internal Heavy Equipment Controller objects time their delays independently of one another. For example, HED 1 and HED 4 can count down their delays at the same time.
|HED Controller -- Engineering Values
517 W C
Identifies the Heavy Equipment Controller (HEC) object managing the delays.
The NAE device has five internal Heavy Equipment Controller objects for use by BO and Multistate Output (MO) objects. The BO and MO objects reference the heavy equipment delay (HED) controller objects by number (1-5).
All BO and MO objects on an NAE share the five internal HED controller objects. For example, if BO1 and MO3 on NAE-1 reference HED controller 1, they are using the same HED controller.
|States Text -- Display
931 W C
Indicates the displayed strings for the Present Value.
|Use Remote Alarming -- Object
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.
|Device Type -- BACnet
31 W C
|Contains a description of the physical device connected to the object.
|Intrinsic Alarming Defined -- BACnet
569 W C
|Enables the definition of the intrinsic alarm related attributes.
