OSI Simulator Interface

Question asked by CLin on Jun 9, 2017

Hi, I am new to the Pi community and is excited to be part of it. 



I am currently working on a project with OSI Pi integration with a MES system. The scope of the project is fairly simple.  I need to simulate values in the Pi tag I created.  Then MES will retrieve the values in Pi.  As of now the requirement is to create tags for temperature, pH level and state of a tank. 



For the temperature and pH simulation, I was able to use Ramp Soak Simulator to generate values.  The issue I am encountering is how can I generate random state for my tank? I am using digital as a point type. Let's say I have 5 States setup in my digital states

0 = Running

1 = Idle

2 = Error 1

3 = Error 2

4 = End

What I need the interface to do is start at a state "Running" for x amount of time then randomly go into another state (1-4) for x amount of time then go back into "Running". Rinse and repeat for lets say 1 hour.


Currently, I have access to Ramp Soak, Random, CMF simulators.  I read the user manuals for all three interface and I was not successful in configuration the tags to do what I need. 


Is there anything I can do to achieve the state requirement?


Any help is much appreciated.


Thank you.
