CS 2011 update notes

The recent update to the io modules lists in it's changes:
"Added Separate Updated signals for Frequency and Analog MF inputs."

I'm not sure what you mean by this, can you elaborate?

Hello,

The Updated signal becomes True for one loop every time the controller has received a CAN message from the I/O-module.

This signal can be used for checking that the communication is OK.

The easiest way is to restart an Off delay timer with that signal. If the timer runs out, the communication is lost. The timer setting should be 3-5 times the transmission rate.

Best regards
Stefan
