The Statistics component provides information about the number of messages regarding the iFnet protocol (servicing the communication with the device from the iC Tool), transferred during one uptime of the device.
The Statistics component has the following slots:
Received Messages: shows the number of messages received by the device;
Sent Messages: shows the number of messages sent by the device;
Errors: shows the number of errors occurred while sending or receiving messages;
Messages per Second: shows the number of messages sent and received by the device.
The Statistics component has a Reset action available:
Reset: erases all message statistics and starts counting from 0.
The ActionTrigger extension is designed to invoke any action that is available for the component. The extension triggers an action selected in the Action Name on the rising edge of the Action Trigger slot. If the action has parameters to set, the parameter is taken from a relevant slot automatically added to the extension (Analog Value/Binary Value/String Value).
It is possible to add more than one ActionTrigger extension to the component (for example, one for each action in the component).
The extension is added from the context menu of the component.
The ActionTrigger extension has the following slots:
Action Name: allows to select an action to invoke;
Action Trigger: triggers an action selected in the Action Name slot;
Action Analog Value/Action Binary Value/Action String Value: a slot added automatically to the extension if an action selected in the Action Name slot has any specific parameters to set (depending on the type of action and its parameters, the relevant type of value is matched).
