Equation with logic?

Postby Guest » Thu Feb 19, 2009 9:34 am


I am using ADC16 and PicoLog and want to setup real time alarm based on the inputs.

I have noticed I can put equation to take the channel inputs, however did not find any reference that I can put some logic statement there, for example AND, OR, IF THEN and etc.. Can this become possible?

for example I have 2 channel inputs A and B, then the alarm is something like the following:

If ((A > 180) AND (B > 1000)) Then trigger the alarm

Or is there a workaournd?

Hi Winston

An equation can be entered to scale the data. This is for linear scaling only and logical condition statements are not appropriate.

Alarm conditions are defined by an upper and lower threshold and each channel can have its own alarm condition. You cannot create an alarm condition based on two channels in PicoLog.
