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? Data logging capacity of 512 kilobytes, approximately 50,000 readings (I & II); Data logging capacity of 2MB, up to 300,000 readings (III & 1010).
What is the controllers role in trending? Sampling, storage.
Can controller be programmed to 'push' data to archive or are trends 'pulled' from controller? Trends 'pulled' from controller.
When full, does controller automatically send up trend data, overwrite data, or stop logging data? When the memory becomes full, new readings replace the oldest readings.
Programming Method(s) via MAXCon software
Resident vs Non-Resident Program Execution Resident
Resident/Supervisory. This controller supervises the scheduling of other controllers.
Resident/Stand Alone. This controller contains its own schedule.
Non-Resident. This controller is dependent upon another controller for its schedule.
None. This controller has no scheduling features.
