How would you convert an analog input signal from a Sontay IO DIM4 into 4 digital Niagara points?
The article makes use of standard kitControl blocks to decode the voltage signal from a Sontay IO-DIM4 digital input multiplexer module into Boolean writable points to represent each of its input statuses
Make sure the IO-DIM4 output link is set to 0-10V and connected to an input set to read 0-10V with no conversion
All the blocks used here are available within the kitControl palette
Please note - the IO-DIM4 sets its voltage output to set the decoded bits to represent its inputs as follows -
- Bit 4 = Input 1
- Bit 5 = Input 2
- Bit 6 = Input 3
- Bit 7 = Input 4
Please DO NOT use bits 0 to 3
The same result can be achieved with a Program component. Please see this article A to D Converter which will give you a good insight into how to use the Program component.
