  2. Create the If condition that will trigger the event.
    1. Click the Select channel button in the If condition section to map to a configured channel that the event will monitor for a value change.
    2. Specify the type of Value change the If condition will use to determine the event trigger.
    3. Specify the data Value that will trigger the event.
    4. For analog triggers, specify the Hysteresis for the If condition to prevent retriggering of the event if the data varies due to noise or jitter in the signal.
  3. Create the Then condition that will determine the action generated by the event.
    1. Select the output type for the signal generation.
    2. Click the Select channel button in the Then condition section to map to a configured channel that will generate the event signal.
    3. Specify the data Value that the output channel will generate.
  4. Click OK to create the event. The event appears and can be edited or deleted from the Test Specification document.
  5. Click the Start Test button to begin the test and enable the event.

    The event can be disabled or enabled while the test is running. To disable/enable the event during testing, hover over the event row and click the Disable button.
