            .2  The Corporation will be accessing the CCS through Corporation Standard equipment by the following methods:

       .1    Through an on-site desktop or notebook PC, connected to the CCS, but not necessarily permanently
       .2    Through either a desktop PC or a notebook PC, which will connect to the CCS periodically by modem.

            .3  The Corporation requires two modes of access to the CCS:

       .1    Through a text based terminal emulation interface available at all points of connection to the CCS.
       .2    Through the full graphics interface described below, where the graphics are resident on any PC, whether
              connected directly to the CCS or remotely through the modem.

            .4  Refer to Section 15920 for the access requirement for this project.

               .2    User control over attributes of dynamic data for display, including:

  • values
  • units
  • point names and full descriptions
  • auto/manual indication
  • access to full point parameters
  • text size

                .3    Dynamic linking of screens via definition of ``hot spots'' at any location on screen.

                .4    User definable sizing of ``hot spots'' and ability to control colour and transparency of same.

                .5    User-controllable automatic update of dynamic data.
