The DipSwitchS3 and DipSwitchS4 components support physical DIP switches located under the top cover of the controller.

The DIPSwitch component

The component must be placed under the Local IO Device component. Components Dip Switch S3 and S4 are not visible on the Isma Point Manager view (if the iSMA_IO.wb is installed).

The DIPSwitch in the Property Sheet

The DIP Switch component has the following slots:

  • Facets: determines how the input value will be displayed.
  • Proxy Ext: the component’s extension that handles the point configuration and has the following slots:
    • Status: indicates the current status of the component;
      • Ok: the component is working properly;
      • Disabled: the component or its parent (device or network) is disabled (the Enabled slot is set to false);
      • Fault: indicates an incorrect configuration of the component;
      • Down: no response from the point;
    • Fault Cause: describes the cause of the error if there is a fault or down status;
      • None: no fault;
      • Bad Parent: component has been inserted in the incorrect place in the structure (the only correct place is the Device component or a subfolder of the Device component);
      • Duplicated Component: appears if a component with a given address already exists (prevents double representation of the input/output within an application);
      • Invalid Type: a type of component is not supported by the device;
      • Parent disabled: a parent (device or network) is disabled;
      • Point down: the point is unavailable.
    • Enabled: enables/disables the component;
    • Poll Frequency: allows to select a poll frequency of the points, the available options are: fast, normal, slow;
  • Out: provides real-time information about the current value set on the selected DIP switches S3/S4. The value is represented as the sum of the values of the set switches in binary code (switch 1 has a weight of 2^0, switch 2 has a weight of 2^1, etc.), together with the units selected in the Facets slot and the current status of the point. If the component is working correctly, the status is considered normal and the value appears with the default status {ok}.
  • Out1-Out8 (for S3 up to Out6): provides real-time information about the current state set on the selected DIP switch S3/S4.

The ProxyExt component’s extension has the following actions:

  • Force Write Config: instantly saves the component’s existing configuration to the device;
  • Force Read: sends a query immediately, despite the settings in the Poll Frequency.
