### Availability Manager's for High/Low Temperature in OS

Hi all,

I've been working on a script to add solar hot water collectors and their respective loops into an OSM. When testing my OSM I got the following error.

** Warning ** GetSpecificHeatGlycol: Temperature out of range (too high) for fluid [WATER] specific heat **
**   ~~~   **   This error occurred 8385 total times;
**   ~~~   **   during Warmup 0 times;
**   ~~~   **   during Sizing 0 times.
**   ~~~   **   Max=96005.281211 {C}  Min=254.576945 {C}


When looking at the E+ example file SolarCollectorFlatPlateWater.idf I found that maybe this was due to me not adding the OS equivalent of a AvailabilityManager:HighTemperatureTurnOff object (line 582). It's possible I'm being very dense, but I'm not seeing this type of availabilitymanager in the OS:Model SDK documentation. Am I looking in the wrong place or has this type of availability manager not been added or possibly not needed in OS? Should I be using a different object?

### Availability Managers for High/Low Temperature Turnoff in OS

Hi all,

I've been working on a script to add solar hot water collectors and their respective loops into an OSM. When testing my OSM I got the following error.
