Switch Case Action Subsystem

Subsystem whose execution is enabled by a Switch Case block

  • Library:
  • Simulink / Ports & Subsystems

Description

The Switch Case Action Subsystem block is a Subsystem block preconfigured as a starting point for creating a subsystem whose execution is controlled by a Switch Case block. The input port to a Switch Case block selects a case defined using the Case conditions parameter. Depending on input value and case selected, an action signal is sent to execute a Switch Case Action Subsystem block.

All blocks in a Switch Case Action Subsystem block must run at the same rate as the driving Switch Case block. You can achieve this requirement by setting each block sample time parameter to be either inherited (-1) or the same value as the Switch Case block sample time.

Merge signals from Switch Case Subsystem blocks

This example shows how to create a one signal from multiple subsystem output signals. The Switch Case block selects the execution of one If Action Subsystem block from a set of subsystems. Regardless of which subsystem the Switch Case block selects, you can create a one resulting signal with a Merge block.

Ports

Input

Placing an Inport block in a subsystem block adds an external input port to the block. The port label matches the name of the Inport block.

Use Inport blocks to get signals from the local environment.

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | Boolean | fixed point | enumerated | bus

Placing an Action Port block in a subsystem block adds an external input port to the block and changes the block to a Switch Case Action Subsystem block.

Dot-dash lines from a Switch Case block to an Switch Case Action Subsystem block represent action signals. An action signal is a control signal connected to the action port of an Switch Case Action Subsystem block. A message on the action signal initiates execution of the subsystem.

Output

Placing an Outport block in a subsystem block adds an output port from the block. The port label on the subsystem block is the name of the Outport block.

Use Outport blocks to send signals to the local environment.
