For all Nodes specified in this specification, the Attributes named in Table 4 shall be set as specified in the table.

Table 4 – Common Node Attributes




The DisplayName is a LocalizedText. Each server shall provide the DisplayName identical to the BrowseName of the Node for the LocaleId “en”. Whether the server provides translated names for other LocaleIds is vendor specific.


Optionally a vendor specific description is provided


Shall reflect the NodeClass of the Node


The NodeId is described by BrowseNames as defined in and defined in Annex A.


Optionally the WriteMask Attribute can be provided. If the WriteMask Attribute is provided, it shall set all Attributes to not writeable that are not said to be vendor-specific. For example, the Description Attribute may be set to writeable since a Server may provide a server-specific description for the Node. The NodeId shall not be writeable, because it is defined for each Node in this specification.


Optionally the UserWriteMask Attribute can be provided. The same rules as for the WriteMask Attribute apply.
