Sinks

Summary of the Sinks components available through the Signal Processing toolbox in Schematic Editor.

The toolbox provides four types of sink components. Their descriptions and supported features are given in Table 1.

supported input types vector support

Termination

Terminates a signal. real, int, uint yes Termination

Probe

Adds a signal to the analog signals list in HIL SCADA. Enabling "Signal streaming" property allows acquisition and logging the signal at a medium sample rate. Signal name can be overriden in a similar fashion as described in Voltage and curent measurements: General tab. real, int, uint yes Probe

Digital Probe

Adds a signal to the digital signals list in HIL SCADA. Enabling "Signal streaming" property allows acquisition and logging the signal at a medium sample rate. Signal name can be overriden in a similar fashion as described in Voltage and curent measurements: General tab. real, int, uint yes Digital Probe

SCADA Output

Sends a measurement value to SCADA. Its value can be read in all SCADA monitoring widgets using API expression. It does not create a signal in the analog signals list. real, int, uint no SCADA output
