VDIN as Adjustable Parameters

Edward Polzin 7 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 7 years ago 1

I think it would be a good feature to be able to add a VDIN (or define the possibility of a momentary action for a DP) to an adjust group so that a user could momentarily (while pressed) activate a function for testing purposes rather than the current DP toggle on / toggle off method.  

You can add a VDIN to an adjust group, but only in the case when it is toggle and store value, so it does not give the momentary action you asked for. 

One problem that one gets when using a DP to temporary activate something is that it is easy to forget to leave it on. 

There is a solution library example that shows how to make an automatic reset function on DP and other adjustable channels: 

\IQAN Files\Solution Library\Parameter reset automatic.ids4

Another thing that is good to know about the VDIN that is configured to not be toggling is that on the MD4 there is a timeout on the button, there is a limit on how long it can be pressed before it automatically resets to false.
