with the highest priority appears
(if one exists). After logging on, you can perform the
functions allowed by your password.

About
Summaries
Summaries contain specific information about selected parts
of the facility. For example, an Object Display summary lists
all objects in a selected system and displays their current
values and engineering units.
Here are a few general rules that apply to summaries:
30 Operator’s Guide
•
Summaries that display objects allow you to go to a Focus
screen for an object by moving the cursor to the object
name and pressing Enter.
•
Summaries that display objects allow you to command
the objects by pressing the Commands hotkey F2.
•
For many summaries, the complete summary cannot be
seen on one screen. To display additional information,
use the F3 key to move up one screen/page, and the F4
key to move down one screen/page. This ability to move
between screens/pages of information in a given summary
is referred to as paging.

Displaying Destinations for Report/Access Group
You’ll find a detailed technical explanation of Report/Access
groups in the Metasys Network Technical Manual under
Software Data Sheets.
Operator’s Guide 39
About
Report/Access
Groups
Report/Access groups (report groups) give you great
flexibility in the distribution of information. With report
groups, you can specify exactly where different reports are
directed. For example, you can specify that all Critical reports
generated by fire systems be directed to the local Operator
Workstation, while all Follow-up reports generated by HVAC
systems be directed to a remote printer.
Report/Access groups work as follows:
•
Assign each system to one report group when you define
the system.
•
Define each report group by assigning destinations for the
eight report types. The eight report types are Critical,
Follow-up, Status, History, Totalization, Trend,
Transaction, and Card Reader.
Destinations can be any defined PC, printer, or PC file
(only Critical and Follow-up reports can have a PC as a
destination).
For example, when defining Report Group 3, specify that
all Critical reports be sent to PC3 and Printer4, and all
Totalization reports be sent to a PC file called FILE3.
When an object in a system assigned to Report Group 3
generates a Critical report, the report is sent to PC3 and
Printer4. When an object in this system generates a
Totalization report, the report is sent to the FILE3 PC file.
•
Assign report groups to each user password. When
logged on, users have access to only those systems that
are in the report groups assigned to their password. The
other systems are not displayed on the System summary.
For example, by assigning report groups to passwords,
you can give one user access to chiller systems only, and
another user access to all systems in the facility. You’ll
find information on passwords in the Defining Passwords
section of this guide.
There can be up to 16 defined report groups.
40 Operator’s Guide
Define destinations for Report/Access groups using Data
Definition Language (DDL). You’ll find more information on
DDL in the DDL Programmer’s Manual.

Commanding Objects
This section tells you how to command objects. This section
includes:
•
About Commands
•
Operation Commands
•
Communication Commands
•
Performing an Operation or Communication Command
You’ll find technical information about objects in the Metasys
Network Technical Manual under Software Data Sheets.
Operator’s Guide 45
About
Commands
Commands tell an object to perform or to stop performing
certain functions.
There are two kinds of commands: Operation commands and
Communication commands. Operation commands direct the
actual functioning of the object. For example, an Operation
command can turn an object On or Off, or determine its alarm
limits. Communication commands direct how the object
interacts with the whole Metasys Network. For example, a
Communication command can lock reports regarding an
object so that Change-of-State (COS) reports are not sent to
report destinations.
Using the
Command
Summary
The Command Summary screen displays all valid commands
for a specific object, and from it the user can command the
object. The user can display the Command Summary screen
while in either the Object Display screen, or the Object Focus
screen. From the Object Display screen, the user simply
positions the cursor at the desired object, and presses F2 to
penetrate to the Command Summary. If the user is in the
Object’s Focus screen, then pressing F2 will bring up the
Command Summary for that object. Once in the Command
Summary screen, the user may select the desired command by
pressing the appropriate highlighted hotkey.
Scheduling
Commands
Use the Scheduling feature to schedule commands to take
effect at specific times. To access the Scheduling feature,
press S in any Object Display. You’ll find complete
information on scheduling in the Scheduling Commands
section of this guide.
46 Operator’s Guide
Operation
Commands
Operation commands are used to turn objects On or Off, to
put objects in override, and to set an object’s High and Low
Warning Limits.
The type of object you are commanding determines the
available Operation commands. For example, if you are
commanding a Binary Output object, the following Operation
commands are available:
•
Auto
•
State 0 (or Off, Stop)
•
State 1 (or On, Start)
•
Override
•
Release All
Note:
In the Command Summary screen, State 0 and
State 1 are accompanied by the display units
specified for the selected object (e.g., Off/On,
Stop/Start). These units are specified during the
object’s definition.
If you are commanding an Analog Input object, the following
Operation commands are available:
•
Auto
•
Override
•
Alarm Limits
•
Warning Limits
Though the Operation command options differ depending on
the type of object, the process of commanding is the same for
all objects. For an illustration of the command procedure,
refer to the section Performing an Operation or
Communication Command, which shows you how to
command a Binary Output object.
Operator’s Guide 47
Communication
Commands
Communication commands determine how the object interacts
with other parts of the FMS. For example, use the Lock
Triggers Communication command to prevent an object from
triggering a GPL process. Use the Unlock Reporting
command to allow reports regarding an object to be sent to
report destinations.
Communication commands are the same for all objects
(except that Unlock and Lock Reports commands are not
available for DCM, XM, and hardware objects). The
following communication commands are available:
•
Enable Communications
•
Disable Communications
•
Unlock Reports
•
Lock Reports
•
Unlock Triggers
•
Lock Triggers
For an illustration of the command procedure, refer to the
section Performing an Operation or Communication
Command, which shows you how to command a Binary
Output object.
48 Operator’s Guide
Performing an
Operation or
Communication
Command
To perform an Operation/Communication command:
1.
Penetrate to the Command Summary screen by pressing
F2 from either the Object Display (after positioning the
cursor at the desired object) or the Object Focus screen.
The Command Summary screen appears with a list of the
valid commands for the selected object.

Note:
50 Operator’s Guide
Not all of the commands displayed in the Command
Summary are valid at all times (e.g. if an object has
not been overridden, the AUTO command is not
valid). If a command is selected (by pressing the
appropriate hotkey) that is not valid due to the
object’s current state, the process of pressing the
command’s hotkey will have no effect. Essentially,
only those commands that are valid, according to the
object’s current state, will have an effect.
Scheduling Commands

•
Setting Up a Calendar Schedule
•
Setting Up a Weekly Schedule
•

You’ll find a detailed technical explanation of the Scheduling
feature in the Metasys Network Technical Manual under

Operator’s Guide 51
About
Scheduling
The Scheduling feature allows you to specify when commands
and features take effect. For example, you can use the
Scheduling feature to specify that a Binary Output object start
at 6:00 every Monday morning.
Assigning Different
Schedules
There are two basic types of schedules that can be used.
They are:
•
Calendar schedule
•
Weekly schedule
There is also a special type of schedule for scheduling
Lighting Control Group (LCG) objects called the LCG Event
schedule.
Calendar
Schedules
Calendar schedules are one shot schedules for a particular
time and date that are executed once and then deleted
automatically from the scheduling data base at the end of the
day. These take priority over any Weekly schedules that may
apply to the object for that particular day. These should be
used for special events. For example, you might use a
Calendar schedule for a school play that requires the lights to
be kept on later than usual.
Weekly Schedules
Weekly schedules are set up to run depending on the type of
day it is. A particular day in the year is one of three types. It
is either Regular, Alternate, or Holiday. These are set up
using the Clock Functions feature. For more information, see
the Setting the Clock section of this guide. For a particular
weekly schedule, the user will select the Regular days desired
(any or all of the days of the week), the Alternate days desired
(same as Regular), and whether or not it should be run on
Holidays. The time of day and the command are also
specified.
For example, if you operate an FMS for a school system, your
Regular weekly schedule might apply to the active school
months of September through May. Your Alternate schedule
might apply to the less active summer months of June, July,
and August. And your Holiday schedule might apply to those
days when the school is completely closed down (for example,
during Christmas or Spring break).
52 Operator’s Guide
One weekly schedule might specify that the fans in the
building start every morning at 6:00 on Regular days.
Another weekly schedule might specify that the same fans
start at 9:00 on Alternate days. A third weekly schedule might
specify that the lights be turned on at 7:00 on all Regular and
Alternate days. On all Regular days, the object starts at 6:00.
However, when an Alternate day arrives, the object starts
at 9:00. On Regular or Alternate days the lights will come on
at 7:00.
LCG Event
Schedules
LCG Event scheduling is a special type of scheduling specific
to Lighting Control Group objects.
LCG schedules are set up to run depending on the type of day
it is. There are two types of LCG schedules allowed: Normal
and Holiday. Normal schedules can run on any or all days of
the week, and Holiday schedules run on days defined as
Holidays.
Each LCG schedule has an associated command, On time and
Off time.
Schedule Calendar
Specify whether each day in a year is Regular, Alternate, or
Holiday in the Schedule Calendar. You’ll find more
information in the Setting the Clock section of this guide.

About
Commands for
Scheduling
List of Commands
for Scheduling
The commands that can be scheduled are a subset of the total
command set available. Certain commands are not allowed to
be scheduled; although, they are manually commandable by
the operator. Scheduling of commands will work the same as
in the OWS with the following exceptions:
•
Begin/End Trend and Begin/End/Reset Totalization
schedules are allowed for VALUE, STATUS, and
TOTAL attributes of standard objects. Should you use an
Operator Workstation to set up schedules for any other
standard object attributes, they will show up in the
Calendar and Weekly Scheduling summaries on an
Operator Terminal; however, a number assigned to the
attribute by Metasys will be listed instead of the name.
Any attribute of a CS object can be displayed when you
view the Calendar and Weekly Scheduling summaries
using the OT.
•
For PIDL objects, the only attribute that may be
scheduled is the SETPOINT.
The following two tables list which commands are valid for
each hardware and software object.

CSG (CS generic) objects have attributes that correspond to other objects. Binary type attributes may
be commanded/released, and analog type attributes may be adjusted/released. It is not permitted to
schedule Totalization/Auto on these attributes.
72 Operator’s Guide
Command Entry for Command entry for scheduling is similar to that of Object
commands except that some standard commands are
Scheduling
unavailable to scheduling and the trend and totalization
commands are added. For more information on command
entry, see the Commanding Objects section of this guide.

attribute data. This section includes:
•
About Object Focus Screens
•
Displaying an Object Focus Screen
•
Displaying the PIDL Object Focus Screen
•

You’ll find technical information about the objects displayed
in Focus screens in the Metasys Network Technical Manual
under Software Data Sheets.
Operator’s Guide 75
About Object
Focus Screens
Object Focus screens display detailed information about
objects. This information includes values assigned to the
object when the object was originally defined, as well as
realtime status for dynamic attributes. For example, an Object
Focus screen displays the object’s current value, engineering
units, the name of the hardware object it is mapped to, and
whether point history data collection is enabled.
The Object Focus screen also allows you to perform
commands on the object.
Types of Objects
There are three kinds of objects:
Point Objects
The software definition for a specific field device such as a
fan control relay or a temperature sensor. Binary Output
objects and Analog Input objects are examples of point
objects.
Control Objects
The software definition for a specific process that combines
multiple field devices together to perform a function. A PID
Loop, a GPL process, and a Load Group are examples of
control objects.
Hardware Objects
The software definition for a controller. Digital Control
Modules, Expansion Modules, and PID controllers are
examples of hardware objects.
Though the objects are different, the process of viewing
attribute values within Object Focus screens is basically the
same.
Note:
76 Operator’s Guide
Operator Workstations, NCMs, and printers are
considered N1 devices.
You can access the Focus screen for an object from the Object
Display screen. Simply move the cursor to the object and
press Enter to display its Focus screen.
Displaying an
Object Focus
Screen
To display an Object Focus screen from a System display:
1.
Select a system from the System Display by moving the
cursor to the system name, and then pressing Enter. The
Object display appears, listing all the objects in the
system.
2.
Move the cursor to the object whose Focus screen you
want to display, and then press Enter. The Focus screen
for that object appears. Here is an example of an Analog

Operator’s Guide 87
About Critical
Alarm and COS
Reports
The Operator Terminal can display COS reports for all
Critical Alarms within the network.
Since the OT is not a configured device in the Metasys
Network, it cannot receive reports in the same manner as a
configured NCM or a configured Operator Workstation. The
only reports displayed are critical reports that have been sent
to a configured printer on Port 0.
Note:
In previous releases of Metasys, Port 3 was used for
this purpose. At Release 8.0 you must use Port 0.
This means that the Operator Terminal will receive reports if
all of the following conditions are met:
•
A printer has been defined on Port 0 of the NCM, either
online or through DDL.
•
The Report/Access group’s data base has been defined to
send Critical reports to the printer defined above.
•
A critical report is generated for an object in the
Report/Access group defined above.
•
The Operator Terminal is online, and either directly
connected or connected via phone lines (Dial-Up).
Note:
88 Operator’s Guide
If the Operator Terminal is not online and a dial-up
connection exists from Port 2 (the submodule port)
of the NCM200 or Ports 2, 3, 5, or 6 of the NCM300
Series to the Operator Terminal, Critical alarm and
COS reports will be dialed out to the Operator
Terminal. Dial-Up connections are not made if the
Operator Terminal is connected to Port 4 of the
NCM200 or 300 Series (the built-in NT port).
Viewing Critical
Alarm and COS
Reports
OPERATOR ID: JCI
Crit 4 S/W OVRD
Critical alarm and COS reports appear on line two of all
Operator Terminal screens. Since only one report can be
displayed at a time, the first report received will be the one
that appears. Once that report is discarded, the next
unacknowledged report with the highest priority is displayed.

When a report first appears, and for every ten seconds
thereafter, a horn on the OT sounds to alert the operator. The
horn no longer sounds when all reports are discarded or
acknowledged. The horn can be disabled or enabled in the
Critical summary. Reports can be discarded or acknowledged
from either the System Display screen, or the Alarm,
Override, or Critical summary. Disabling the alarm horn and
discarding reports are discussed in more detail later in this
chapter.

Displaying the
Critical Summary
Use the Critical summary to:
•
•
•
•
view alarm and COS reports that are defined as Critical
enable/disable the alarm horn
acknowledge alarm and COS reports
configure the OT NCM’s Dial-Up port
The Critical summary holds a maximum of 50 reports. Once
the summary reaches 50 reports, the most recently received
report with the lowest priority is discarded. For example, if
Critical summary is full, and another report is sent to the
summary, it will either:
•
be discarded (because it is the most recently issued report
and it is of the same or lower priority than the reports in
the summary), or:
•
replace another report (because the incoming report is of
higher priority than one that is already stored in the
summary)
To display the Critical summary:
1.
2.
Display either the System Display screen, or the Override
or Alarm summary.
Press C. The Critical summary appears.

About Point
History
The Point History feature samples, displays, and archives
attribute data associated with objects. The attributes sampled
are the object’s current value and status (e.g., offline,
disabled, overridden).
At the Operator Terminal, point history information can be
displayed in a Point History Data screen accessed from the
Object Display.
Note:
The Point History feature is not available for CS
objects. In order to get point history on a CS object’s
attributes, you must refer to the objects that the
attributes are mapped to.
For AI, ACM, and AD objects, the NCM stores the last
48 samples and collects data every 30 seconds and whenever
there is a change-of-state. For AOD, AOS, BI, BD, and BO
objects, the NCM stores the last ten events and collects data
whenever there is a change-of-state.
For an object’s point history information to be collected and
displayed, the object’s Enable Point History attribute must be
set to Y (Yes).

The name of the feature that commanded the object
(e.g., DL/LR), and the associated priority.
SW Override
If the object is in software override at the time of sampling, a
Y (Yes) appears. If the object is not in software override, the
column is blank.
HW Override
If the object is in hardware override at the time of sampling, a
Y (Yes) appears. If the object is not in hardware override, the
column is blank.
Offline
If the object is offline at the time of sampling, a Y (Yes)
appears. If the object is not offline, the column is blank.
Disabled
If the object is disabled at the time of sampling, a Y (Yes)
appears. If the object is not disabled, the column is blank.
Disabling an object’s communications suspends the collection
of point history data. Therefore, the Point History feature will
suspend collection after recording once that an object has been
disabled. Data collection will resume only when the object is
enabled again.

About
Totalization
The Totalization feature totals quantities and counts the
number of times events occur for standard object attributes
and attributes of CS objects. For example, the Totalization
feature can calculate the total amount of energy used by a
particular piece of equipment, or the total number of hours a
supply fan runs each week. Totalization answers questions
like the following: How much steam (or gas, or chilled water)
did the facility use last month? How many hours was the
supply fan for AHU3 in operation last week?
Use totalization data to save energy, lower energy costs, and
provide effective maintenance.
The totalization data is collected by the Network Control
Module (NCM) and displayed in a table at the Operator
Terminal.
There are four types of totalization: Analog, Pulse, Runtime,
and Event.
Analog Totalization
Analog Totalization totals data recorded at an analog sensor.
It answers the question “How much?” and is typically used to
measure the consumption of a supply such as chilled water or
steam. The input sensor provides a value corresponding to the
current rate of consumption, or flow.
Pulse Totalization
Pulse totalization, used only with Accumulator (ACM)
objects, totals data recorded at a pulse sensor. It answers the
question “How much?” and is typically used to measure the
consumption of a supply, such as gas or electricity. The input
sensor provides a pulse as each unit of consumable energy is
sensed.
100 Operator’s Guide
Runtime
Totalization
Runtime totalization accumulates total time only while a
particular condition is satisfied (for instance, while Fan 1 is
On). It answers the question “How long?” and is typically
used to determine how long equipment is running in order to
schedule maintenance after a certain amount of use. The
runtime totals are recorded in minutes and then converted to
hours.
Event Totalization
Event Totalization records a total of the number of times a
binary event occurs. It answers the question "How often?"
and is typically used to determine the frequency of events.
For example, Event Totalization counts the number of times a
fan turns On, or the number of times an object enters an alarm
state.
Scheduling
Totalization
You can schedule when totalization data collection begins and
ends for a selected attribute. You’ll find information on
scheduling totalization in the Scheduling Commands section
of this guide.

About Trend
The Trend feature monitors changes in object attribute values
over time. For example, the Trend feature can monitor how a
temperature sensor value changes throughout the week. The
Trend feature answers questions like the following: How
constant is the temperature in a certain area of the building?
How often does the temperature get close to the warning
limit?
The trend data is collected by the Network Control Module
(NCM) and displayed in a table at the Operator Terminal.
The Trend feature differs from the Point History feature in
that Point History data collection has a fixed sample period
and fixed number of samples. In contrast, the Trend feature
allows you to specify the sample interval and the number of
samples. The Trend feature allows you to specify trending for
VALUE, STATUS, and TOTAL object attributes, as well as
any CS object attribute.
The Trend feature uses two screens: the Trend Item screen
Trend Item and
Trend Data Screens and the Trend Data screen. You use the Item screen to set up
trend and to access the Data screen. You use the Data screen
to display the actual trend data.

Figure 65: The Trend Data Screen
The Trend Data screen displays two columns, consisting of
two fields of trend data. Each column consists of values for
the attribute at various time samples. If data is unreliable
(e.g., if the NCM goes offline), ????? appears. Each row in a
particular column represents one time sample. The trend
samples are displayed in chronological order, with the most
current samples at the bottom.

includes:
•

•
About Password Definition
•
Displaying the Password Summary
•
Adding a Password
•
Modifying a Password
•
Clearing a Password
You’ll find technical information on the Password feature in
the Metasys Network Technical Manual under Software Data
Sheets.
Operator’s Guide 123
About Passwords Passwords protect the security of the FMS by giving different
users different levels of access to the facility. For example,
one user can have complete access to all objects, while
another user can have read-only access to HVAC objects.
Each facility can have up to 50 unique user passwords. The
Operator Terminal provides five levels of password protection
and up to sixteen Report/Access groups for each facility.
About Password
Definition
Use the Password summary to define passwords. To access
the Password summary, you must have a level one password.
To define a password means to add it to the password data
base. When you define a password, you specify the display
language, time out interval, password level, and
Report/Access groups that are in effect when the password is
logged on.
Display Language
The display language determines which language the Operator
Terminal uses to display text. For example, if French is
specified, all menus, prompts, and messages are displayed in
French.
Time Out Interval
The time out interval determines how long the terminal will
wait before automatically logging the user off in the case of
no keyboard action. For example, if the time out interval for
the current password is five minutes, the user will be
automatically logged off if there is no keyboard action in a
five minute period.
124 Operator’s Guide
Password Level
The password level determines which functions are available
to the user. For example, a user with a password level of five
has read-only access to summaries. This user cannot
command objects or change attribute values in Object Focus
screens. A user with a password level of two can perform all
functions except defining or modifying passwords. A user
with a password level of one can perform all functions,
including the definition of new passwords. You’ll find
information on the functions accessible to each password level
in the Metasys Network Technical Manual under Software
Data Sheets.
Report/Access
Groups
Each system is assigned to one Report/Access group when the
system is defined. When you define a user’s password, you
specify what Report/Access groups the user has access to.
This determines which systems the user has access to.
The use of Report/Access groups provides flexible security
protection. For example, all systems having to do with
heating and air conditioning can be assigned to a
Report/Access group called HVAC. When defining a
password for a user whose main job will be to control heating
and air conditioning equipment, you can specify that the user
be given access to the HVAC report group only. This means
the user will have access to only those systems assigned to the
HVAC report group. When this user is logged on, only those
systems are displayed on the System summary. All other
systems are not accessible. If another password is logged on
that allows access to all Report/Access groups, all systems in
the network are displayed on the System summary.
You’ll find more information on Report/Access groups in the
Report/Access Groups Summary section of this guide.
Operator’s Guide 125
Displaying the
Password
Summary

About Alarm
Messages
An alarm message is an ASCII text string associated with a
specific object. When the object goes into alarm or changes
state, the message associated with the object is displayed in
the Critical Alarm Warning box screen on the Operator
Workstation and in Critical and Follow-up summaries . The
message might tell the operator what to do in the case of an
emergency. For example, the message--Fire--call 911
and evacuate building!--might be associated with an
object that goes into an alarm state when fire is detected.
Some objects may have two messages associated with them:
an alarm message displayed when alarm limits are exceeded
and a warning message displayed when warning limits are
exceeded.
Alarm messages can be up to 65 characters long. Each alarm
message is assigned a number from 1 to 255, inclusive.
One alarm message can be assigned to many objects.
Alarm messages are stored in Network Control Modules
(NCMs). Each NCM has a different set of up to
255 messages. A system’s host NCM must contain the alarm
messages for objects in the system. For example, if NC3 is
defined as the host NCM for the AHU1 system, all alarm
messages for objects in the AHU1 system must be stored in
NC3.
