Description

A short description of the functionality; Keep it brief to fit in Mobile Client buttons.
This is mandatory for saving a function definition; Without a description all other settings are lost.


Timer

With the timer box the function can be deactivated automatically. Values greater than zero are activation time in units of 100ms.
Starting with Rev. 14571+, the maximum time is 10,000 x 100 ms = 1000 s or 16 2/3 minutes.
Values greater than zero are interpreted as time. (0 = switching function, 1 = pulse function with 100 ms, 2 = pulse function with 200 ms, etc.)
With a null entry, the function remains activated until it is deactivated by an event, an action or manually.

Note: Due to the slot management of the CS track signal, noticeable deviations may occur if many trains running (High data traffic) and a Function time is short.
