Testing Alarm Burst in 800XA
Is there any method to create testing Alarm Burst in 800XA and check the system performance capability ?
Answer this question Follow
The first idea coming to my mind is to create hundreds / thousands of AlarmCondBasic in Structure text by help of excel, all alarms triggered by one common bool variable. You can use Data direct to catch all alarms from 800xA and check in excel whether all arrive. I think it should work.
Call the Same AlarmCond Block multiple times in one program loop. ( The compiler might complain, ignore this ). The Monitored signal has to actually change each call.
For i := 1 to 1000 do Signal := NOT Signal; AlarmCond_1( Signal := Signal ); end_for; Will generate 500 Alarms ( ie each transition false to true )
