Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part
The CDC APC is described as a controlable analog process value. A controlable analog process value may be the position of a peterson coil or the position of a gate from a hydraulic gate. The control part of the data object based on that common data class provides the position the process equipment (gate or peterson coil) shall move to; the return value (FC=MX) provides the current position of the gate. Alternatly, a CDC exists, that allows a binary control (higher or lower). This is in line with what exists for tap changers (control of the tap position or binary control).
Use the CDC APC for both of the above described cases. In 7-4 (or any other part, that defines logical nodes with data objects) clearly state, what the return information (data attribute with FC MX) represents. As a better solution, the CDC APC shall be extended with a data attribute setPtVal (FC=MX) in addition to the data attribute mxVal (FC=MX) - these two data attributes beeing conditional. In 7-4 it shall be stated, which of the two DAs shall be used.
