    When you ramp a cbus group address the initiating unit just sends out a ramp giving a end value and ramp rate. It is up to receiving devices to do the physical ramping (e.g. an output device like a dimmer). By default the SHAC doesn't track ramps for events so it will only trigger a single event at the end of the ramp. If you select track ramps it will call the event at regular intervals during the ramp. For 4 second ramps it's every second, 8 second ramps every 2 seconds, 12 second ramps every 3 seconds and then gradually less often as the ramp rate increases. I'm sure there's some logic to it, but that's not documented anywhere.
