Can you pick up open load and overload only errors on MC3 outputs?

Kevin Arscott 4 years ago in IQANdesign • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 4 years ago 3
We need the system to display an error message and restrict certain functions only when an open load or overload of an output occurs on an MC3 controller.

The only way of picking up an error message appears to be in the system information function, but this seems to be a blanket error flag that could be a fault with any part of the control system (including v ref, batt voltage etc). We would ideally only like to pickup on an open load or overload.

I see there is module status, but that only shows 9 different items. Is there an option to pick up on only the open load and overload error of an output on an MC3?

Hi,
I think you can use the math-function "Status = ", Operand 1 is your digital output, Operand 2 the error you want to detect.
Then put this function in wherever you need it.
Thanks, that's just what I needed!
