This object contains attributes common to many Metasys system objects. These common attributes are described in the Common Object Attributes section. 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).

Attribute ID Writable (W) Configurable (C)

Attribute Description

UDP Port -- Setup

2258 W C

Indicates the UDP Port on the NAE used to communicate to the Ethernet to RS-485 converter. The port must be 1024 or higher, but cannot be equal to the BACnet UDP Port, the N2 Trunk UDP Port, or 9999.

Retries -- Setup

1162 W

Displays the number of times the device tried to pass a token as the next node did not start using it within the time allowed by the protocol.

Poll Delay -- Setup

1163 W

Specifies the time in milliseconds between BACnet object polls for attribute values. The polls start at the time specified in the Periodic Update attribute. As the poll delay increases, the overall time in the Execution Time attribute increases.

It is useful to specify a Poll Delay on sites where the rate of reading the remote objects causes too high of a burden on the Metasys network or third-party device. The initial value of the Poll Delay attribute is blank (zero).

Message Timeout -- Setup

1165 W C

Specifies the delay in milliseconds between the last character going out and the first character received.
Note: The Message Timeout attribute is writable only if is not zero. If User Datagram Protocol (UDP) Port is zero and you attempt to write Message Timeout, an error message appears.

Low Battery -- Status


Indicates if any wireless sensors defined as children of the Wireless Receiver Objects have a low battery. The Low Battery status is an advanced warning that can occur many days before a wireless sensor ceases to function. You can configure an alarm for this attribute to allow the building operator time to locate the sensor and change the battery.

Alarm State -- Status


The Alarm State attribute indicates that the object transitioned into alarm or unreliable conditions. This attribute does not appear in the SCT UI.
