What is the point capacity of a DMS-3500? How can it be found on a "live" system?
TAC I/A Series
Adding an air-handling system to an existing DMS installation. The point capacity of the existing DMS-3500 is required to identify how much free capacity remains for the additional programming.
A DMS-3500 has a 250 point capacity.
Using OPRIF 11.x, connect to the DMS-3500 and follow the steps below to determine the actual point count on an installed system:
- From any screen, press F8 to enter command mode.
- Type CANCL (then Enter) to view the first point in the database.
- Type PNTID (then Enter) to view the first point's point name. To the left of the point name is a three-digit number. It should read 001 since it is the first point in the database.
- Press the F5 key which will display the last point in the system. The three-digit number to the left of the point name will indicate a value between 001 and 250.
