This refers to any available data in the subsea system not included within the definition of other objects that may be transmitted via a “generic” discrete or analogue object. This includes data that may have been considered “alarms” in legacy subsea systems, but are simply data points that are available to the DCS to manage as alarms, events or to be logged as desired. The SCV may also implement “roll-up” statuses that condense numerous statuses into fewer bits / words in order to optimise data transfer.
