Discrete Values Section

Abstract

Check out this article and learn more details about the Discrete Values section of the WEBfactory 2010 Studio application

For the users of WEBfactory modules (e.g. SchedulerPro) it is often more intuitive to control processes discretely. For example, a light switch can be controlled to the best advantage by means of discrete values like light ON and light OFF.

In the Discrete Values section, the user can define discrete values as text-value pairs such as [light ON =1] or [light OFF= 0]. The defined pairs can be grouped in functional units in the Discrete Value Types section, which will eventually be assigned to signal variables. At the same time, the user can create multilingual texts for discrete values, which will then be available to the user.
