APP IN / APP OUT Packaging: Is there a means to package signals into and unpack out of the APP IN/APP OUT

Julian Robinson 4 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 4 years ago 1

Can I pack multiple signals / parameters into the APP OUT parameter so as to send more infomration in one message?  Then unpack it on the other side. For example, if I have a lot f digital signals I want to share arround multiple MC43 modules, sending only one APP OUT is far more sensible than making multiple APP OUT's ?  Kind of like a J1939 PGN with SPNs inside.

I've seen some ideas with shift operations to put multiple values in an integer and send that, but the method I'd prefer would be to use JFIN/JFOUT instead.
