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? 64 default objects and up to 256 objects. Each object holds up to 256 samples.
What is the controllers role in trending? Information not provided.
Can controller be programmed to 'push' data to archive or are trends 'pulled' from controller?
When full, does controller automatically send up trend data, overwrite data, or stop logging data? Information not provided.
Programming Method(s) Information not provided
Resident vs Non-Resident Program Execution Resident
Scheduling
Resident/Supervisory. This controller supervises the scheduling of other controllers.
Resident/Stand Alone. This controller contains its own schedule. 10 - 100 scheduling objects
Non-Resident. This controller is dependent upon another controller for its schedule.
None. This controller has no scheduling features.
