IOTASK – Driver-triggered task of the REXYGEN system

Block SymbolLicensing group: STANDARD

Function Description
Standard tasks of the REXYGEN system are integrated into the configuration using the TASK or QTASK blocks. Such tasks are executed by the system timer, whose tick is configured by the EXEC block.

But the system timer can be unsuitable in some cases, e.g. when the shortest execution period is too long or when the task should be executed by an external event (input signal interrupt) etc. In such a case the IOTASK can be executed directly by the I/O driver configured by the TIODRV block. The user manual of the given driver provides more details about the possibility and conditions of using the above mentioned approach.



Input for connecting the first task to the Tasks output of the TIODRV block or for connecting to the previous task’s next output
