hello,i have a question concerning the lack of sufficent feedback LED’s in the default code
our controller system has numerious LED indicators this year for the pneumatic system and various other things. i ran into a problem in that i ran outta LED varaibles. if someone knows how to connect more LED’s to the OI or the varaible names for the last 2 indicator’s on the OI (marked swich 1 and 2 if i remember correctly) it would be a great help.
Page 21 of the System manual: LEDs labelled switch 1 thru 3 indicate the state of those switches on the RC, and are not available to the program.
Are you overlooking the possibility of using the dashboard port on the OI ? You can get a lot of feedback about the sensors on board, and a few of the variables sent from the OI to the RC (or all of them using the jumper on the OI).
You could always trigger the switch inputs yourself
We almost ran out of LED’s on the board and considered using a switch with a bunch of contacts to select which ‘set’ of LED’s to control. Therefore having 16 LED’s on the board but only 8 active at a time and the switch both electrically connected the right ones and told the code to light up the right ones based on switch position
It seems like an option
