Getting Started with the Stimulus Profile Editor Tutorial

Last Modified: June 10, 2021

Use tutorial examples to become familiar with the Stimulus Profile Editor.

Before you begin, learn how to navigate the stimulus profile editor.
  1. Set up a basic testCreate a real-time sequence that turns on a car engine, sets the engine speed to 2500 RPM, holds this speed for 20 seconds, and then turns the engine off.
    1. Reading and writing channels directly from a real-time sequenceUse channel references, parameters, and variables to turn on a car engine, set the engine speed to three different RPM values, measure how long the engine takes to settle at each specified RPM, and turn the engine off.
  2. Execute multiple parallel tasksCreate a stimulus profile and a real-time sequence that incorporates multitasking, which executes multiple parallel tasks.
  3. Configure failure notificationModify a real-time test by adding a return value that reflects the success or failure of a warm-up task.
  4. Log data to a fileLog channel data from a running stimulus test to a TDMS file.
  5. Call a CSV file as a real-time sequenceUse Comma Separated Values (.csv) files within stimulus profiles to stimulate, fault, and evaluate channels.
  6. Play back previously recorded test dataCreate and run a stimulus profile that plays back data from a previously recorded VeriStand macro file.
  7. Update model parameter values during test executionCall text files in a stimulus profile to update the values of engine model parameters while a test is running.
