Read from one or more input channels not handled by specific blocks
Connect to and read from hardware sources requiring specialized driver support that other Simulink® Desktop Real-Time™ input blocks do not provide. The Other Input block is rarely used and only for a few drivers. For details, see the documentation for the driver that you intend to use.
If none of the available blocks, including Other Input, provide what you need, you can create your own I/O blocks to work with Simulink Desktop Real-Time applications. For more information, see Custom I/O Driver Basics.
Data— Data read from input channels
The data type and range of the output value depend on the capabilities of the board.
Input channels— Select other input channels
1(default) | vector
Enter a channel vector that selects the other input channels that you are using on this board. The vector can be any valid MATLAB® vector form. For example, to select eight contiguous analog input channels, enter:
To select the first three input channels, enter:
Optional parameters— Specify optional parameters that the driver requires
0(default) | vector
See the manufacturer data sheet for the required values.
