BACnet Multistate not shown correctly on graphics

BACnet Multistate not shown correctly on graphics

Issue

BACnet Multistate is showing the numeric value of the selection, instead of displaying the text associated with that selection.

Product Line

EcoStruxure Building Operation

Environment

  • TGML Graphic
  • BACnet multi-state-value

Cause

If BACnet multi-state-value text values are required to be shown on a graphic, rather than the integer value, then  the DynamicText option is needed to be used rather than DynamicValue option when creating the graphic.

Resolution

Below shows what happens when you use DynamicValue for a MultiState Bacnet points

Below shows what happens when you use DynamicText for a MultiState Bacnet points

NOTES

1. If WebStation still shows only the Integer value rather than the correct text, it may be network routing/firewall related. In this case check the WebStation graphics from different addresses and test direct to the AS and logged on via the ES to gain a better understanding of the issue

2. Graphics can be created using translation/substitution, this may be a workaround, if the network routing/firewall cannot be adjusted
