Paint object

System master data

Back to the overview

A Paint object is a element in an visual energy Distribution. The supplied library contains a series of typical Paint objects for the different mediums. If that are not enough, you can define more Paint objects in the System configuration. There are three types of Paint objects:

  • 0-Internal: Associated Meteringpoint will not be used in the Distribution-balance.
  • 2-Input: Associated Meteringpoint will be used for sum inputs in the Distribution-balance.
  • 1-Output: Associated Meteringpoint will be used for sum outputs in the Distribution-balance.

Each Paint object consists of 8 individual elements, symbols (A-H), contains maximum one placeholder for one Meteringpoint and is associated to a OBIS-A System-medium.
