Stratix Switch Data Type

3 posts in this topic

I currently have a stratix 5700 and when adding the device its data type has an associated DINT called fault.


I can't seem to find any information on what this corresponds to and I'm not sure what it truly indicates.

Does anyone know what these bits mean?

Seems to me that RA documentation (and the physical tag in the tag database) generally shows the DINT, in this case .Fault, then shows tags directly below it for a breakout of DINT as BOOLs.  But in this case, there are 33 individual bits listed.  I think it's just a matter of testing to see what bits turn on when and what the DINT value shows.

Just for giggles, I added a 6, 10, 12 & 20 port switches, then looked in the tag database.  The tag changes along with the definition of the BOOLs.  It it obvious for the 6 Port, not so obvious for the 10 port and above.
