In order to read the “Time Value” for UPDATE_TIME_PERIOD in Command 54 using HART EDD Host applications that only support Tokenizer formats FMS or FM6 (i.e. Version 5 and 6), we will need to create an Unsigned Variable of 4 Bytes
1. Create Two VARIABLEs: TIME_VALUE and UNSIGNED_INTEGER (4)
Create a VARIABLE of type TIME_VALUE and another VARIABLE of type UNSIGNED_INTEGER, 4 bytes and specify each VARIABLE a unique “name” (see below).
NOTE: All VARIABLE names registered in a HART EDD must only have TYPE defined
2. Create a conditional in each Device Variable collection
Reference the two VARIABLEs created in step 1 (above) in each support Device Variable collection
NOTE: DO NOT create the conditional in the COMMAND
