Last Modified: September 27, 2021

Create a variable channel you can edit at any time, such as while a test is running. Variable channels act as static integer value channels you can use to make changes to formulas during a test, such as changing a multiplier to zero to turn a signal off.

  1. In the Channel Specification, select Add channels»Variable in the toolbar. A variable channel appears in the Channel Specification under its host system.
  2. Configure the variable channel.
    1. Specify a name and description for the variable.
    2. Add an integer as the variable value.
    3. Add a unit of measurement.
    After you configure your variable, add it to new and existing formulas.
Refer to Calculation Formula Options for more information about formula syntax rules and to see formula examples.
