Block Parameters

Channel vector

Enter numbers between 1 and 4. This driver allows the selection of individual D/A channels in arbitrary order. The number of elements defines the number of D/A channels you use. For example, to use the first and second analog output (D/A) channels, enter


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


From the list, choose a range code. This driver does not allow a different range for each of the four channels. This selection must correspond to the range and bipolar/unipolar jumper settings on the board.

The following table is a list of the ranges for this driver and the corresponding range codes. The D/A specific jumpers on the board must be set as required by the ranges entered.

Input Range (V)

Range Code

-10 to +10


-5 to +5


0 to +10


0 to +5


For example, if the first and second channel range is 0 to +10 volts, enter

Reset vector

The reset vector controls the behavior of the channel at model termination. Enter a scalar or a vector that is the same length as the channel vector. If you specify a scalar value, that setting is replicated over the channel vector. If you specify a value of 1, the corresponding channel is reset to the value specified in the initial value vector. If you specify a value of 0, the channel remains at the last value attained while the model was running.

Initial value vector

The initial value vector contains the initial voltage values for the output channels. Enter a scalar or a vector that is the same length as the channel vector. If you specify a scalar value, that value is replicated as the initial value over the channel vector. The channels are set to the initial values between the time the model is downloaded and the time it is started.

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.
