A multi-binary reaction matrix is used for the evaluation of value, state and status bits of digital variables. The lower bits (bit 0.15) are used as value for the display in pictures (dynamic elements) and in the chronologic events list (field "value"). In addition to the known configurings of value and status combinations, further configurings are possible.

Edge change = Change of status

Additional to checking the bits on '0' and '1' also the rising edge - changing the value from 0 to 1 - the falling edge - changing the value from 1 to 0 - and any change can be checked.

CEL (SAT: EZ) text

Additional CEL output of the value in addition to the status text

Status routing

Routing of bits (also negated) to other bits ?Possible sources: - Value bit 0..31

Special functions

Automatically switch off data point when status bits are present or allow status changes to pass when data point is switched off (for resetting)

Only SAT specific:

The upper 16 bits (bit 16...31) are used in the protective data configuring for the information processing; the information number is stored in the upper 16 bits.

The function of the multi-binary reaction matrix is identical to the binary response matrix for the main states. In case of any changes to the main states the respective state configurings (alarm, CEL, text, etc.) are executed.

If a main state has substates, the substates are checked first on reaching the main state. If no substate corresponds to the current state of the variables, the respective state configuring (alarm, CEL, text, etc.) of the main state is executed. If the substate corresponds with the current state of the variables, the respective state configuring (alarm, CEL, text, etc.) of the substate is carried out. If the state of the variables changes from the substate to the main state, there is no new output to the chronologic event list and the alarm list (e.g. breaker tripping treatment in the SAT system).


Main value

-> Lower valuexxxxxx00 no alarm, CEL text off
-> xxxxx100 alarm, CEL text Breaker tripping off
xxxxxx01 no alarm, CEL text On
xxxxxx10 alarm, CEL text Difference
xxxxxx11 alarm, CEL text Malfunction

Change from "ON" to "OFF"

no alarm, CEL entry "on"

Change from "ON" to "OFF"

Alarm entry Breaker tripping off, CEL text Breaker tripping off
-> Acknowledgement of the breaker tripping (change of BREAKER TRIPPING OFF to OFF)
cleared alarm breaker tripping off, no renewed CEL text

For the output in the CEL and in the process pictures the entire contents of the variable can be separated to two parts. One part is used for the limit definition, the second part (value) is used in the pictures. (Field of application: protection telegrams in SAT 1703).

For special use source bits (value and status) can be routed to target bits (status).

Possible options are:

Source bit

Select source bit from listbox


Negate source bit during the routing

Status bit

Select target bit from listbox


Accept selected routing


Delete selected routing; ?Beware: There is no further query


Move selected routing in the sequence upwards


Move selected routing in the sequence downwards

The dialog mask is switched over when activating the special function page.

Possible options are:

switch off for

status bits where the data point is to be switched off Check for "0" or "1" is possible

allow to pass for

status bits where a change in status is to be allowed to pass

No old/new comparison

No monitoring of changes

No old/new comparison for ET-route

No monitoring of changes on the realtime route

info Info

A decimal value can be entered with a colon as well as with a point, the decimal point will automatically be changed to a point.
