How do I simulate an input with Control Expert (formerly Unity Pro)?

Published date: 30 September 2019

Issue: 
 The user needs to be able to simulate a discrete input value changing between 0 and 1.

Product Line:
  Unity Pro

Environment:
  Online with the PLC or with the Unity Simulator

Cause:
  The ability to simulate inputs will aide the user during debug and commissioning 

Resolution:
   It is possible to simulate discrete input operation in Unity Pro.
  To accomplish this you simply need to use the "Write_Input_Ebool" block.
  Place a value of either 1 or 0 on the Write_Input_Ebool input and the address of the input point to be simulated on the output of the block.
  The Write_Input_Ebool block will work with topological or State RAM addressing.
