Step 2. Configure a System Sentry Device Point General Properties

  1. Select the General tab of the Point Properties dialog box.

  2. (Optional) Enter a description of the point in the Description field.

  3. Choose one of the two following data types.


Unsigned integers ranging from 0 to 4,294,967,295.

The UDINT format is the format in which the counter results are stored.

Note: Decimals are truncated when UDINT is selected.


Floating-point numbers.

The REAL format is useful when the counter tracks current data, for example, per second counts.

  1. Select one (1) in the Elements field. The counter counts one (1) element.

  2. Check the Read Only check box. If the Read Only check box is clear and someone tries to enter a setpoint value, CIMPLICITY will display an error message.
