EMD Speed Sensor Function Block compiling error
« on: October 06, 2023, 09:53:30 AM »
Hello,

I am having issues compiling a program with EMD Speed Digital Direction Function Block.
Library EMD Speed Sensor ver: 11115595v102 is the version I have, I have tried blocks EMD_SPD_DIR and EMD_SPD_DIR_D_A_ with no success, I receive the same compile error, viewing logical net tells me it's related to code inside the block as I receive message unable to view disabled page, directing the error to a page I cannot see therefor I think maybe these function blocks are broken?

Anyone else experience this?

Hello,

What does the compile error say?
Are all the input signals the correct type?
If you use constants, make sure you use typed constants, not auto-typed. A very common issue.

Maybe the time to send the autotype-constants in retirement is overdue: the benefits are close to non existant, the issues caused by data type errors ...

I did not try constants instead of autotypes, as I found out with the assistance of Ryan from Help Desk that I was addressing input from an expansion module which do not have the HW "Per." capabilities for the FB to work correctly.

Tip for young players, read/plan carefully the pin requirements of the hardware FB prior to selecting the hardware.
