In my distributed
cRIO system (9 cRIO's and 4 PC's) I have decided to use the scan engine
coupled with an intermediate layer at the RT level to provide
features such as programmable channel scaling, filtering, dead banding,
CVT binding, and Forced I/O which would be very handy for providing
a transparent means to go into 'manual' mode and
override RT control of I/O resources. I suppose I could live with a
900mS delay between when you push a button on the HMI
effect is produced in the cRIO hardware but I am afraid it would make
my HMI feel very unresponsive and would be an embarrasing aspect to an
otherwise well constructed design.
I would like to see if it
might be possible to obtain some experimental code that would allow me to
temporarily get around this problem until LV 8.6.1, is that possible in
the short term or should
I abandon the use of forced I/O for my application?
