Disable specific outputs or Inputs Error Messages

Hello All,

It would be nice that error messages of each input or output could be independently disabled.

I'm aware of the function group method:


But I might want to disable the automatic error message of a particular output or input, and still being able to identify its error state, rather than stop evaluating it.

For example, I might want to "retry" the activation of an output in overcurrent/short state, and only show a custom error message after a few tries.

Or, in case some output is not always connected to the load, but it needs to be continously turned on. For example, an output for optional working lights, or position lights, which are connected to the machine when needed, and always removed when not. I don't want to bother the operator turning on/off the output, neither with error messages if always on. ( open-load detection can't be disabled output by output on some modules ).


At least for your last example there is a solution which I use for optional work lights.

something like this:

if (Status(Output) = OpenLoad) then
   FunctionGroupEnable := False

That means as soon as I detect open load on the work light output, I disable the function group that contains it. This hides the error message from operator.

It can be retried after reboot or every time the door is closed for example.
