Cicode Programming Reference > Cicode Function Categories > Miscellaneous Functions Introduction > TestSquareWave


Generates a square wave. The height of the wave is restricted by minimum and maximum values. You can offset the starting point of the wave, for example, to display multiple waves at the same AN. You can use this function to generate test input.


TestSquareWave( [Period] [, Low] [, High] [, Offset] )


The number of seconds required to generate one cycle of the wave. If no period is entered, the period has a default of 60.


The lowest value of the wave. If no low value is entered, this value has a default of 0.


The highest value of the wave. If no high value is entered, this value has a default of 100.


The offset in seconds, to generate the wave. If no offset is entered, the offset has a default of 0.

Return Value

The value of the square wave.
