10.1 Applications

The most common use of function code 10 is to select the highest value. Function code 10 can also be used to memorize the highest value over a period of time.

 

To memorize the highest value over a period of time (time is set with S3 of function code 9), use function code 10 with function code 9 as shown in Figure 10-1. Create a loop with the output of function code 10 as an input for function code 9, and the output of function code 9 as one input to function code 10. Function code 9 tracks the output of function code 10.

 

The output of function code 9 feeds back to function code 10, thus, memorizing the value of the input with the highest algebraic value. This continues until S3 of function code 9 switches the input signal from <S2> to <S1>.
