Just out of curiosity, how does epics knows that 
"60 seconds" is actually 60 * 1 second

In other words, what if I write in my dbd file 
choice(menuScan60_second,"1 minute")
or
choice(menuScan1_minute,"1 minute")

Why are those entries different from 
choice(menuScan60_second,"60 second")
?

Thanks,
