Issue

Environment

I/A Series G3

Cause

Can I remove the permanent override feature or limit the maximum override duration from the station or an individual point in I/A Series G3?

Resolution

Starting in version 3.4.51, the permanent override can be removed globally from the station by adding a facet to the SysInfo facets property on the root of the station. Add a new BRelTime value to the SysInfo facets and assign it the name "maxOverrideDuration." This enables a station global limit on the duration for any control point.

The value of this BRelTime should be the MAX duration allowed. A value of zero means that 'Permanent' is allowed. A non-zero value limits the custom to a maximum time value.  Note that 'Permanent' is the default if no "maxOverrideDuration" facet is found.

Starting in version 3.5.25, the feature was enhanced to allow specifying the max duration on an individual control point basis. Follow the same procedure as defined above but add a new BRelTime value to the individual point's facet.

Example:

  1. Right click on the station's Config container and select View - Property Sheet.
  2. Click on the Sys Info >> to open the Config Facets dialog box.
  3. Select + to add a facet.
  4. Click inside the Key area and enter the new key name maxOverrideDuration.
  5. Click on the Type drop down and select RelTime.
  6. Click on the Value ... and enter the desired time.
  7. Select OK
