IO111 - Setup
IO111 - Setup — Configure the IO111 input/output
Simulink Real-Time - Speedgoat
Your model can contain only one Setup block
for each I/O module in your target machine.
The Setup block dialog box allows all of the supported I/O types of this module to
be configured, and therefore impacts on the Analog output driver block.
This driver block has no input or output ports.
This control selects an I/O section, the parameters of which are then
shown in the dialog box below the 'Parameter group' field. Possible
Quad-DAC 1 (channels 1 – 4)
Quad-DAC 2 (channels 5 – 8)
Quad-DAC 3 (channels 9 – 12)
Quad-DAC 4 (channels 13 – 16)
Parameter Group: Module setup
A unique module ID must be used for each type of I/O module Setup block in your
The module ID has two functions:
It defines the logical connection to link the I/O module driver blocks
with each other
It also has an impact on the PCI slot auto-search feature: if only one
I/O module is installed, the module ID must be set to 1. If multiple modules are installed, it must
be in the range 1:n. Not all the I/O modules installed in the target
machine need be used
Select the active input/output channels in a vector. A defined number of channels
can be selected using square brackets, for example [1 2 3]. A sequence of channels
can be selected using a colon, for example, 1:4.
Define the initial signal level present on the outputs after the application has
been downloaded. The values can be set individually by entering a vector: the value
at a certain position in the Initial Values vector is applied to the channel as
defined in the Active Channels vector. A scalar value applies to all the channels;
for example, for individual values, type "[1 1.5 0 2.5]", and to set all channels to
zero, type "0".
Reset to Initial Values
Define whether the initial values are also applied once the application has
stopped. The behavior can be set individually for each channel using a vector. A
scalar value applies to all the channels; for example, for individual values, type
"[1 0 0 1]", and to set all channels to zero, type "0". "1" means use the Initial
Value and "0" means keep the latest value.
PCI Slot (-1: autosearch)
There are two approaches for mapping the blocks to a specific I/O module installed
in the target machine. All modules of the same kind must be configured using the
Auto-Search: the default value -1
allows the real-time target machine to auto-search for the I/O module.
The priority is defined by the module ID (first vector element for a
multinode). The module with the lowest PCI bus/slot number is assigned
to module ID 1 (or [1 x]) and the next module found is assigned to
module ID 2 (or [2 x]), and so on
Explicit Addressing: the location of the module inside the target
machine can be explicitly defined by using the [BusNumber, SlotNumber]
format. To determine the bus number and the PCI slot number, run the
following command in the MATLAB command window:
Parameter Group: Quad-DAC n
Range Channel n
Select one of the four available analog output ranges. The selected
range applies to the specified channel only. Each of the 16 channels can
have its own specific range.
Enable Thermal Shutdown
When checked, thermal shutdown mode for this Quad-DAC (group of 4
channels) is enabled. The Quad-DAC will automatically go into stand-by
mode if the maximum device temperature is exceeded.
Enable Clamp (20mA Current Limit)
When checked, clamp mode for this Quad-DAC (group of 4 channels) is
enabled. The Quad-DAC will limit the output current of each of the four
channels to 20mA.
