    Rampsoak Interface

    ben.edmonds@cgi.com

      Hi,

       

      I've been experimenting with the Rampsoak interface to create sample patterns. I've been trying to create many phases by using the length of the ExDesc which for the version I'm using is up to 1023 characters. 

       

      If I put in more than 20 phases then the interface goes back to the zero and loops back round the phases, I was wondering 20 phases is an upper limit on the number of phases?

       

      Thanks,

          Can you please give more details on this - what kind of patterns you are trying to create?

              Hi Gopal,

               

              I'm trying to simulate a water flow signal based on a set of sample data this varies across a 24 hour period using the rampsoak interface.

               

              Thanks,

                  Hello Ben,

                   

                  Have you modified the Ramp Soak Simulator's startup file? If so, would it be possible to attach it together with the configuration of your tags?

                   

                  This way we possibly able to reproduce your issue and see what's going on.
