What are the Different Action Types? (Cortex series)

MAJOR

MAJ stands for Major Alarm. This automatic action type initiates an Alarm-Call Sequence (ACS) using the selected MAJORx Alarm-Call List (ACL). It also records a “MAJORx” event in the System Log. Note that this action type requires that you also select one of the 8 MAJ ACLs (MAJ1 to MAJ8). If the input is also controlling relays, the Davicom will automatically act on those as well.

MINOR

MIN stands for Minor Alarm. This automatic action type initiates an Alarm-Call Sequence (ACS) using the selected MINORx Alarm-Call List (ACL). It also records a “MINORx” event in the System Log. Note that this action type requires that you also select one of the 8 MIN ACLs (MIN1 to MIN8). If the input is also controlling relays, the Davicom will automatically act on those as well.

CMD

CMD stands for Command. This automatic action type is used when you only want to control relays (up to 6), or qualify another input without triggering any alarm. It also records events in the System Log (for example “1A01 ACTIVE”). If the CMD-type input is controlling relays, the Davicom will automatically act on those.

System Log

Uncheck this option if you do not want the previous action types to record events in the System Log.
