Block Input Data Type





Block Parameters

Carrier ID

Enter the Carrier ID of the IP carrier board into which the IP module is plugged.

To use an IP module, it must be physically plugged into an IP carrier board and the model must contain a block representing this carrier board. Each carrier block has a Carrier ID parameter, which must be set to a number not shared by another carrier board block in the model.

Carrier slot

Select the slot on the carrier board into which the IP-16DAC module is plugged. Different carrier boards can have different slot capacities.

Channel vector

Enter a vector of numbers between 1 and 3. The channel numbers can occur in arbitrary order. For example, to use the first and second analog output (D/A) channels, enter


Channel numbers 1, 2, and 3 correspond to DAC A, DAC B, and DAC C respectively.

Range vector

Enter a range code for each of the channels in the channel vector. The range vector must be the same length as the channel vector. This board allows the range of each channel to be different.

The following table is a list of the ranges for this driver and the corresponding range codes.

Input Range (V)

Range Code

-10 to +10


-5 to +5


0 to +5


0 to +10


For example, if the first channel is -10 to +10 volts and the second channel is 0 to +5 volts, enter


The range settings must correspond to the jumper settings on the board for DAC A, DAC B, and DAC C.

Sample time

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