    Last Modified: May 15, 2018

    Follow these guidelines when naming channels and variables in the I/O Configuration table:

    • Rename the channel or variable by double-clicking the default name in the Name column.
    • Use only Unicode 5.0 language-type characters.
    • Do not use Boolean operators as names.
    • Do not use spaces in channel or variable names. Replace spaces with underscores.
    • Refer to the following table for a list of common keywords and operators that are not allowed for use in channel or variable names.

    The Functional Safety Editor will not allow you to enter forbidden characters.
