Additional Information
* Items in NV memory are not lost upon power or battery failure. Other types of NV memory such as EPROM, NOVROM, etc. do not directly impact system performance.
Can trend data be stored in this controller? Yes
How many total trend values can be stored? One trend every 15 minutes for 20 days
What is the controllers role in trending? The FX16 Master controller acts as a web sever and communicates the trends to a personal computer.
Can controller be programmed to 'push' data to archive or are trends 'pulled' from controller? push
When full, does controller automatically send up trend data, overwrite data, or stop logging data? The FX 16 Master Controller automatically sends up information to an email server for additional electronic storage.
Programming Method(s) FX Tools is a software suite used to program, download, test, and commision the Facility Explorer devices, including the FX05 field controller. You can download the application to the controller via PC with FX Tools or you can upload or download the application via the FX Programming Key (a proprietary hand-held device).
