Character string (30 characters max)
(ASCII character string.)
An ASCII string of up to 30 characters plus a terminator (ASCII 0) that must be stored within the ‘ascii’ field, immediately after the last character of the string. The maximum string length is therefore 30 characters plus the terminator. SNVT_str_asc must only be used for communicating textual information to system integrators and operators. It must not be used for encoding commands or state information for other devices. Commands and state information must be encoded in appropriate scalar or structure network variable types.
