Changes to the PXC.A device configuration are saved in non-volatile memory every 5 minutes and whenever you log out of the device.
  1. Save and log out to immediately save changes to the device configuration.
    NOTE: Large databases can take up to one minute for the save operation to complete. Wait at least a minute before restarting the controller after saving the device.
  1. Changes to the device configuration are lost if a power cycle occurs within 5 minutes of the change and before you have logged out.

The Object view displays a detailed listing and state of events related to the local device. For example, it shows whether the device is operational, lists the available RAM and Flash memory, lists all notification classes from 1 through 18, and provides detailed event logs under Device > Infrastructure.

  • Automation station event logging is available for all devices.
  • When connected to an automation station, Alarm history and Commissioning history event logs are also available.
  • The Object view displays when you log in to any operating and monitoring device with the status Unconfigured or Download Required.


Tree view

The tree view displays view nodes and provides a structured view of devices and objects on the network. As you navigate through objects in the work area, the tree view expands to display the same elements as the work area.

Object management view
The object management view is the primary work area. The top level consists of Device, Field bus, Application, and Common global.
The object management view depends on the user role.

Root icon and breadcrumb navigation
The breadcrumb list is created as you navigate through the work area. Select any item in the breadcrumb list to navigate to that level of the hierarchy.
Click the root icon to clear the breadcrumb navigation list and display the top level of the work area.

Search bar
The search bar uses filters to search for objects on the controller. You can quickly search by applying filters or entering text into the search bar. Click to reset the search bar or delete filters from your search. To use a filter, click in the Search bar and select any of the following options:

  • Description
    Searches for objects based on their description.
  • Object name
    Searches for unique object names.
  • Object type
    Searches based on the objects and data point object types.
  • Alarmable
    Searches based on a True or False query to filter objects that can or cannot be in alarm.
  • In Alarm
    Searches based on a True or False query to filter objects that are or are not in alarm.
  • Out of Service
    Searches based on a True or False query to filter objects that are or are not out of service.
  • Present Priority
    Searches for objects that have a priority that is greater or equal to 8 or less than 8.
  • Building automation profile
  • Use the list to filter objects by profile.

If a large number of BACnet objects are loaded in a PXC.A controller and displayed on the web interface, it is easier to work with these objects and see timely changes in their values if a subset of the object is filtered.

NOTE: Ensure that all the BACnet objects have been uploaded to the web interface before filtering them.
