Controllers / Re: Inputmode_problem

Please what happened if the user change configuration without reboot the controller and change the sensor.

The concerning input (C1p32) is protected or not.

Is it possible to now the C1p32.InputMode actual value in order to make logical program for tell the user to start the controller.

Thank you very much Matt, Tom and Tor.
It's no easy for me to understand HW Init configuration but I understood your ideas.  I will do that.
But why originally it's not separate and we can change Input-mode value.
Please Could you refer where I will find more information about Init using and HW?

An other time thanks for your help,

Just to clarify what the initial problem is.
The INIT component writes a value to the kernel before the first program loop and it only accepts inputs from constants and non-volatile memory components. So the compile error you get is probably that you have a switch connected to the INIT component.
But as Matt_Eng pointed out you can just separate the INIT and HW inputs. You can connect a constant to the INIT input and have your logic connected to the HW input.  The INIT is not used while the application is running.

You can find this information by mark the component in the component tree, and press "F1" on your keyboard.

Good Luck

Hi, there is a way to do this, but it does require modifying the template slightly, I've mocked up a little example for you.
To do this properly, you only want the input mode to be able to change after a power cycle.

In the sub block of the pin page, you will want to separate the Init and InputMode signal.

Then you would setup the NV component to drive the init, and limit the InputMode to only be set on the first loop.

You can also do a similar thing for setting the baudrate of a controller without requiring a recompile.
Hope this helps, Matt

The inputmode along with outputmode cannot be changed programmatically like that.  You need to pick one for that program and use another input for the other sensor.

I use SC050-120 pin 32 as input.
I have option to use two sensors analog and resistance.
So I have using switch to do that as showing at the first image.
As result compilation error Initialize Hardware output must be connected to an output which is valid for initialization.

Please could you help me

thanks in advance

You can check if the message is being transmitted or received in the CAN Monitor. The last column labelled Dir is the message direction, R for receive & T for transmit.

Hi acmall, you might be right. Well I can't get it to work, everytime I use preconfigured function blocks that are locked up it bites me in the rear. Now I have to spend some ridiculous amount of time writing my own fault management system to suit the Dm1 interface on my screen.

Got it, thanks for the answer.

The issue was the connection from the termination point to the CAN LOW on the controllers connector.

I was confused with this as I saw data coming also when only the controller was connected,
but I guess that these were some kind of messages that came from the Service Tool and not the controller.
