Input port Description

  • out1 to out4 [integer]: these input ports correspond to the DAC output of the same number on the CIM. The input is an integer and has a valid range between 0 and 240. The values represent the output voltage in 100mv steps, e.g. a value of 10 represents 1.0V, 143 represents 14.3V.
  • uniqueId: unique number of the CIM - if more than one CIMs of the same type are used. The module flashes a LED for identification when the ID is selected.
