Time On and Counts

When this feature is enabled it will keep track of how long a Boolean value is true and how many times it transitions to True.

The Time On and Counts feature will keep track of the following:

  • TimeOn – How long the point is on for the current instance in minutes.
  • TimeOnCurrentDay – How long the point is on for the current day.
  • TimeOnPeriod1 – How long the point is on for Period 1.
  • TimeOnPeriod2 – How long the point is on for Period 2.
  • TimeOnTotal – How long the point has been on for all of time.
  • CountCurrentDay – How many times the point has transitioned for the current day.
  • CountPeriod1 – How many times the point has transitioned for Period 1.
  • CountPeriod2 – How many times the point has transitioned for Period 2.
  • CountTotal – How many times the point has transitioned for all of time.

The following image shows how the points will appear for connection in a client if the High High Alarm Limit is enabled for Time On and Counts.  You can also use Value or any other Alarm Limit.
