This object contains attributes common to many Metasys system objects. This section includes attributes of the Focus/Configuration tab. 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)
|States Text -- Display
931 W C
Indicates the displayed strings for the Present Value. For BACnet compliant objects, if no States Text is specified when the object is created, the Inactive Text and Active Text are used to derive the equivalent States Text if possible.
|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.
|Intrinsic Alarming Defined -- BACnet
569 W C
|Enables the definition of the intrinsic alarm related attributes.
|Min Off Time -- Engineering Values
66 W C
|Represents the least 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 least number of seconds Present Value remains in the Active state after entering the Active state.
|Restore Command Priority -- Restart Options
721 W C
Selects which commands (at a selected priority) persist through a device restart. When the bit is set, the command (at a selected priority) is saved at shutdown and restored at startup.
|Relinquish Default -- Default State
104 W C
Specifies the default value to be used for the Present Value attribute when no commands are currently controlling this object. If this attribute is configured to any value other than None, the object sends commands for the value immediately.
