Set value expressions in RTMC Pro

mwassmer Oct 31, 2017 07:24 PM

Is it possible to apply an expression (for unit conversion) to a value set by the user?

In my datalogger programs, I always use SI units. However, I like to use IP units to display data in RTMC Pro when the user is in the U.S. It is easy to use an expression to convert units for data display in RTMC Pro, but is it possible to convert values set by users back to the native units of the public variable being changed?

If it is within a range they would be setting it, It would be pretty easy to put a slider next to your displayed value. The slide could be directly linked to the variable in SI units. You can turn off the number display of the slider itself.

If I insert a Slider component, how does the slider refer back to the Set Point component that has the value in IP units?

The slider will be in SI units, directly linked to the variable. You will use a different component to show the SI value in IP units.
