Define condition variable

First, we have to define data points, which can be used later for the formulas of the command conditions. If the defined conditions are fulfilled by the linked process variables later, during Runtime, the user has the respective actions available.

info Info

If a variable which was used in a command condition is deleted later on, the index within the condition is adjusted. The succeeding variables are put forward and the formulas are adjusted automatically.

The following procedure is recommended for defining a command condition:

Example Example

  1. Select the node Variable in the detail view of the command conditions and select the option 'New' in the context menu.
  2. In the selection dialog, select a process variable, which serves as the base for the formulas of the command conditions. You can also abort the variable selection dialog, which leads to an empty definition. You can define an automatic substitution for this empty link with a '*'.
  3. Select an already existing action and the node 'Conditions' in the detail view. With 'Condition new', you can define any number of conditions for every action. The definition is not performed with formulas; rather, non-fulfilled conditions cause a lock of the associated actions in the Runtime.

All further settings (e.g. the allocation of an interlocking to a variable) can be made in the properties window. The properties are described in detail in the properties help section of the Editor.
