FC 151 - Text Selector

Function code 151 sends message numbers and color (selected by logic) to a human system interface (HSI). The message numbers correspond to text strings configured in the HSI message list. Message number and color reporting occur using Symphony exception reporting techniques.

 

The text selector can operate in one of two modes. The first mode uses the message number input, color input and blink input to select the message number and attributes. The second mode uses the value of a control status input to select one of three predefined message numbers and attributes. Control status reflects the current operating state of a device as good (0.0), bad (1.0) or waiting (2.0). The text selector block references a control status output contained in function codes 123, 125, 129 and 136. This reference automatically selects the second mode of  operation. A set of specifications that define the message number, color and blink are associated with each state of the device control status. The message number, color and blink are then set according to the current status of the device. Table 151-1 lists the HSI color codes for a Conductor VMS HSI.

151.1  Specifications

 

S4

Determines the control status. If good, message (S5), color (S6) and blink (S7) are reported. If bad, message (S8), color (S9) and blink (S10) are reported. If wait, message (S11), color (S12) and blink (S13) are reported. If the control status input (S4) is not defined, S5 through S13 are ignored and S1 through S3 specify the message number, color and blink to be reported.

 

NOTE: When implementing function code 151 for Batch 90 use, S1, S2 and S3 must remain at default values. All other specifications are ignored.
