Ramp Controller

With the ramp controller function block you can control a ramp between two set levels.

FUNCTIONS

This block implements a gradual approximation to the target values. Input S chooses between two target values which are set with the parameters. When S is zero the output AQ is set to L1 and when S is one the output is set to L2.

The value at the output is adjusted every 100ms by whatever the step size parameter SR is set to until the target L1 or L2 is reached, hence you can adjust how gradually the ramp moves.

If input St = 1, AQ will output the value of parameter SV. If the DisP input is set to one then the output AQ will be set to zero.

OVERVIEW

Inputs

Description

DisPDisable inputLocks the inputs of the block and sets AQ to 0
SStep selection0 =  Step 1 (parameter L1)
1 = Step 2 (parameter L2)
StStart inputSets AQ to value set by parameter SV

Parameters

Description

SVStart valueDefault value of the ramp control (controlled by input St)
SRStep sizeAQ changes every 100ms by value of SR until the target is reached. The minimum allowed value of SR is 0.001.
L1Level 1Value for step 1
L2Level 2Value for step 2
