    Old: var 559 and 560

    Just a question about var 559 and 560 (fire test).
    For that variables must I use a switch on off or could I use simple a push button so that if I keep it pushed it simulates that is being mantain pushed?
    In this case do I have to program as type I or P?

    Re: Old: var 559 and 560

    Well just give the different possibilities a try I'd say ...

    Vars 559 and 560 are of type OL (On/Off leading) so they are modelled to be used with an On/Off type of switch (either with a lever or a latched button type) like this:

    Var 559 Static Link IOCARD_SW Input xy Type I

    However, you can also connect a push button to these Vars, like this:

    Var 559 Static Link IOCARD_SW Input xy Type P


    Each time you push the button the fire test goes from 0 to 1 and vice versa. So one push and you have a fire test and a second push releases the fire test.

    You can also use the push button like this:

    Var 559 Static Link IOCARD_SW Input xy Type I

    Now if you push and maintain the button you will have the fire test, as soon as you release the button the fire test is over...
