The runtime editor allows editing of the settings of a runtime accumulator. A set of conditions are defined (such as a fan running) and when the conditions are true, the runtime is incremented to keep track of how long a piece of equipment has been used.
Runtime can also server other purposes. For example, a condition of "Temperature1 is greater than Setpoint1" could be set up and the runtime will be equal to the number of hours a temperature has exceeded setpoint.
The status tab contains:
This is where the runtime conditions are specified.
There are two modes for the conditions:
Up to six conditions may be entered. Click the "+" or "X" buttons to add or delete conditions. Each condition contains the following fields:
Runtime LimitThis is the number of hours considered the limit for this runtime. Email alerts may be sent at specified percentages of this limit. See the Notifications tab for more information.
MessageThis is the message that is saved to the database and emailed when the runtime is exceeded, or at specified intervals.
The message may contain the following codes to embed information within the text:
"@V1 filter needs cleaned." will be recorded as "Fan1 filter needs cleaned".
"@V1 has accumulated @R hours of runtime." will be recorded as "Fan1 has accumulated 114.35 hour of runtime.".
Email to GroupsSelect the list of user groups that should receive runtime messages. Every person in the group that has an email address in the user database will receive the messages.
Additional Email AddressesAny additional email addresses that should receive the messages may be typed here.
Notify at...This is the percentage of limit to record the first message. For example, with a limit of 1,000 hours and this value set to 90%, the first message recorded would be at 900 hours.
Notify again every...This is the percentage of limit to record messages after the first. Using the above example, and this value set to 5%, a message would be recorded at 90%, 95%, 100%, 105%, etc.
