PS Terminator

Terminator for unconnected physical signal outputs

  • Library:
  • Simscape / Foundation Library / Physical Signals / Sinks

  • PS Terminator block


Use the PS Terminator block to cap physical signal output ports that do not connect to other blocks.

Unlike conserving ports in physical modeling, or Simulink® output ports, unconnected physical signal output ports do not generate warnings. However, you can use a PS Terminator block for clarity, to indicate that the signal was not inadvertently left unconnected.

The block icon size allows you to connect the PS Terminator block to an open port without rerouting the adjacent lines:

Input physical signal.

The port name is not visible in the block icon, but you can see this name in the underlying source file (accessible by clicking the Source code link in the block dialog box).
