EA9_ PANEL TO D2_ 262 TO F2_ 08DA_1 8 CHANNEL ANALOG OUTPUT
« on: September 06, 2022, 05:03:36 PM »
Hello, I'm new to advanced programming. I have a screen that i put 8 Sliders on with Tag addresses V400 to V407. How do I get the 0 - 4095 to the Analog Output Module in Slot 4 ?  Hardware is DL205 I/0 base, D2-262 CPU and a F2-08DA-1  8 channel Analog Output Module and using Directsoft 6.3 software.  If I use Pointers, would i have to use 8 of them? I would be very grateful. Thanks Don

Greg

Use the ANLGOUT IBox (IB-461) to setup the pointers. It asks you for the Base, Slot, and Number of Output Channels, and also what the Output Data Format will be (BCD or BIN), and also the address where the data is stored (e.g. V400-407).
There are two types of people in the world; those that can extrapolate from incomplete data sets.
