A sensor can have 3 different color states which are defined by the severity.
Example of a digital input (DI)
Here we have an example of an DI. This snippet has been taken from a configuration of an ADAM-4051, which has 16 DI's and is accessed via ModBusRTU. For the device configuration, please click here.
Example of reading a holding register, whoose value need to be converted to Bit
Here we have an example of an holding register, which holds an Interger16 (Int16) and thus need to be converted to Bit. This snippet has been taken from a configuration of an AY1020 IO-Link Master, which has 6 IO-Link ports, who retrospecively can hold 16 digital sensors. For the device configuration, please click here.
It is also possible to create sensors, which do not have any physical sensors attached to them. This is especially usefull for different states and for creating variables, which then can be used to further usage.
Here we have a rather simple example of an Alarm sensor, which can be set if an action or an automated action has been triggered.
