DAPL Process Control Commands

Process control commands are used for system monitoring and regulation.

A special command provides control of processing priority, allowing intensive number crunching tasks and responsive real-time tasks to coexist.

Establish the execution priority of all tasks in the group.

Real-time and control commands generate responses to individual events with minimum time delay.

PID (Proportional - Integral - Derivative) feedback control, plus several common extensions.
Pre-computed smoothed input transitions for PID and feedforward controls.
Perform shutdown overrides to safe output level before shutdown.
Convert amplitude data to pulse width modulation data for on-off control of slow analog processes.
Software based decoding of optical encoder signals for relatively slow rotating systems.
Post a digital alarm if the signal level exceeds an adjustable operating range.
