When adding or editing an Analog Input Point, the “Edit Analog Point” dialog has two check boxes and corresponding text boxes to let you set “Send Value” or “Send Values” for “Averaging Filter Weight” and “Offset and Gain” respectively.
I’m curious as to when these values would be sent to the brain, whether or not they would be “persistent” in the brain (get stored to Flash), be overwritten by later restarts, etc.
Normally, I’d set these things up in the strategy itself (for filter weights) or I’d use PAC Manager to do calibrations (offsets and gains) for analog inputs, and then save them to flash for the I/O unit in question so the calibration would persist after power interruptions or program changes, etc.
Seeing these (to me new) check boxes and text boxes in this dialog in PAC Control, I’m curious as to how and why to use them.
Reading in the newest revision of the PAC Control User’s Guide, it says they’re only good for Analog Outputs, yet they show up, (not grayed out) for my analog inputs, and, of course, they’d both logically be used for Analog Inputs.
So I’ve got a lot of questions about how to use these parts of the Edit Analog Point dialog.
Sorry if this has been covered before.
