Output true until counter reaches maximum count limit
Motor Control Blockset / Sensor Decoders
The Software Watchdog Timer block increments the counter value until either
the block receives a
Restart input pulse, or the count reaches the value of
the Maximum count parameter.
On receiving the
Restart pulse, the block restarts the counter and
starts incrementing the counter value again when the
The block maintains the true
Status output until the counter value
remains less than the value of Maximum count parameter. When the counter
reaches Maximum count, the block stops the counter and turns the
Restart— Pulse to restart watchdog timer counter
The pulse (true value) that restarts the watchdog timer counter. The counter resumes counting when the pulse falls (false value).
Status— Watchdog timer status
The watchdog timer status indicated as one of the following:
True indicates that the counter value is less than the value of the Maximum count parameter.
False indicates that the counter value is equal to the value of the Maximum count parameter and the block has stopped the counter.
Maximum count— Maximum limit of watchdog timer value
10(default) | scalar
The maximum limit of the watchdog timer counter value that causes the block to stop the counter and turn the watchdog timer status to false.
Counter data type— Data type of
The data type of the watchdog timer status output.
