Wanted to provide the group the target list of blocks that will be available in a palette to use to create your programs in the Niagara engineering module for MP.
Open the excel file below to review the list.
Are there any thoughts to Xenta blocks and Continuum functions? Such as:
Integ/Accum (Continuous accumulation, as a difference to triggered CountUp)
Curve (also similar to Curve Fit for WPTech)
Continuum functions made into blocks:
Does the DatetimeSelect block handle these items or is it used for another purpose?:
Sample and Hold (Float, Integer, Boolean):
Will the Xenta version of "Sample and Hold" become exact match within the proposed
blocks such as Latch, SR, Clocked SR?. I usually see variations in different product lines
of how all these blocks are handled, and what actually holds the signal and clears it.
Would save putting in a Not block if ever needed.
The xenta blocks have an RST block that will indicate when the controller has been rebooted
and remain active for a single cycle. Continuum has its own version of the reset indication
as well which will generate an ON for a single scan time.
