    Last Modified: March 31, 2017

    Implements an on-off controller.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    action

    Action of the controller.

    Name Value Description
    Reverse 0 The controller is reverse-acting.
    Direct 1 The controller is direct-acting.

    Default: Reverse

    datatype_icon

    reset

    A Boolean that specifies whether to reset the internal parameters, such as the integrated error, of the controller.

    True Resets the internal parameters.
    False Does not reset the internal parameters.

    Set reset to True if your application must stop and restart the control loop without restarting the entire application.

    This input accepts an array of Booleans if setpoint is an array.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    setpoint

    Setpoint value, or desired value, of the process variable.

    This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    process variable

    Measured value of the process variable.

    This input accepts an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers if setpoint is an array.

    datatype_icon

    controller hysteresis

    Hysteresis of the controller.

    This input accepts an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers if setpoint is an array.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    dt

    Loop-cycle time, or interval in seconds, at which this node is called. dt must be greater than 0.

    Default: 1

    datatype_icon

    minimum ON time

    Minimum time for the controller to remain activated.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    minimum OFF time

    Minimum time for the controller to remain deactivated.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    output

    A Boolean that returns the status of the controller.

    True The controller is on.
    False The controller is off.
    datatype_icon

    error

    Difference between the setpoint and the process variable.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: DAQExpress does not support FPGA devices
