Value of numeric entry field into Ac800M
I am busy on a project with an AC800M connected to a 800XA DCS.
I use already the function block SignalReal to can get some value from the controller to the PG2 graphic display.
But now I need to get a Input filed where the user can directly put a fabrication order ( integer ). after I have to read this integer in the program of my AC800M.
I don't find a function block like the signalReal to get this integer value in the controller.
What's the best way to do this?
Use input field element in pg2 and select the data type as u reqd and define the same variable in the program of the same data type and link the property ref to this input field.
If you want a function block create ur own block and use it.
U can use signal real block and map input= output
