Description

Effective Period

The Effective Period attribute defines the range of dates within which the Schedule object is active. By default, these dates are unspecified, causing the Schedule object to be active for all days. When the Schedule is not within the Effective Period, the Schedule is considered Inactive and the Schedule’s status is set to Inactive. Wildcard may be used in the date fields. For more information on using wildcards, refer to the Metasys SMP Help (LIT-1201793).

Schedule Output Type

Schedule Output Type Options

  • Binary: Select this option to set the schedule’s Value type to Binary (one of two states, such as Off and On).
  • Analog: Select this option to set the schedule’s Value type to Analog (for example, 72.0).
  • Multistate: Select this option to set the schedule’s Value type to Multistate (one of a set of states, such as Off, Low, Medium, and High).
  • Derived from Key Item: Select this option to set the schedule’s Value type to match the Value type of the attribute scheduled for the Key Item. For example, all values are Boolean (True/False) if the Key Item’s Enabled attribute is scheduled.
  • Derived from Value: This type is only set by the system - it cannot be manually selected. This type indicates that the current schedule type matches preexisting values.

Default Schedule Command

The Default Schedule Command attribute indicates the command of the Schedule object when no event is in effect, due to no scheduled command or a conscious gap in the schedule. The Default Schedule Command is executed every midnight unless another event is in place to begin at midnight.

The Default Schedule Command also supports the Release command. The Release command releases the Scheduling function’s control of the scheduled objects. Setting the Default Schedule Command to Release is the only available method to release the schedule’s control of scheduled objects through the Schedule object. Release should only be used for the Schedule Default Command if the scheduled items support the Release command.

States Text

The States Text attribute indicates the displayed strings for the Present Value when the Schedule Output Type is either binary or multistate. This attribute allows you to change what states the Schedule’s Present Value displays if you want it to be different from the key item.

Display Units

The Display Units attribute indicates the displayed units of the Present Value when the Schedule Output Type is analog. This attribute allows you to change the units displayed with the Schedule’s Present Value if you want them to be different from the key item.
