Block Parameters

Channel vector

Enter numbers between 1 and 16. This driver allows the selection of individual digital input lines in arbitrary order. The number of elements defines the number of digital lines you use.

For example, to use the first eight digital inputs, enter


Number the lines beginning with 1 even if this board manufacturer starts numbering the lines with 0.

Sample time

Enter the base sample time or a multiple of the base sample time (-1 means sample time is inherited).

Base address

Enter the base address of the board. This entry must correspond to the DIP switch setting on the board. For example, if the DIP switch setting is 300 (hexadecimal), enter 0x300.
