The Multistate Output object’s attributes represent the desired state of one or more physical outputs or processes of the device in which the object resides. The actual functions associated with a particular state are determined locally (not part of protocol). Present Value represents the state with a number, and State Text associates a description with each state.
The Multistate Output object integrates N1, N2, and BACnet controllers with supervisory controllers, resulting in:
a consistent interface to point objects for all controller types
flexibility in point mapping
support for Metasys controllers
For example, this object allows you to command the modes of an access control device from a supervisory controller.
For general information on Metasys system objects, see Common Object Attributes.
