Drawings Overview
The Metasys Operator Workstation allows operators to display your
facility in both textual and graphical formats. Figure 6-1 shows a
System summary with an air handling unit as a textual list of objects.

Monitor Facility Conditions
System drawings allow operators to monitor facility conditions
pictorially. The object’s current value appears next to the object
symbol. Analog Input objects update every 20 seconds. Analog Output
and Binary Input and Output objects update whenever there is a
change-of-state. Critical Alarm messages appear over the drawings,
immediately informing operators of alarms.

Handles
All Windows applications use up or consume Windows handles. Every
application uses handles, and 8,192 handles are available, including:
Windows operating system, Metasys software, and Metasys graphics.
The number of handles that each application uses is dependent on the
contents of the application. For example, an average graphic uses
around 500 Windows handles, although it may be more or less
dependent on the complexity of the drawing.
A graphic with a lot of objects uses more handles than a graphic with
just a few objects. Do not open several complex graphics that use a
large number of objects at one time. If you use up all of the available
handles, Windows operating system generates a General Protection
Fault and you must reboot the system.
