◆ RecorderConfigureToTriggerOnMotion() [1/4]

virtual void RecorderConfigureToTriggerOnMotion ( Axis axis,
bool  triggerOnMotion 
pure virtual

Setup the recorder to trigger on motion.

ℹ This function is avaliable in RapidCode

Part of the Recorder method group.

RecorderConfigureToTriggerOnMotion sets the recorder to trigger on motion. The recording will will start when the motion starts, and the recording will automatically stop when the Motion Done condition is true.
(axisor multiAxis) Axis or MultiAxis object to be affected.
triggerOnMotionA boolean value to set trigger state. TRUE = trigger on Motion.
Sample Code:
// Constants
const int VALUES_PER_RECORD = 2; // How many values to store in each record.
const int RECORD_PERIOD_SAMPLES = 1; // How often to record data. (samples between consecutive records)
const int RECORD_TIME = 250; // How long to record. (in milliseconds)
const int INPUT_INDEX = 0;
// Get the host controller addresses for the values we want to record
controller.RecorderCountSet(1); // Number of processed Recorders in the controller.
Axis axis = CreateAndReadyAxis(Constants.AXIS_NUMBER); //Helper function to setup an axis
UInt64 userBufferAddress = controller.AddressGet(RSIControllerAddressType.RSIControllerAddressTypeUSER_BUFFER, 0); // Grabing an memory address to store a simulated IO point.
//Instead of using physical IO we will use simulated IO using a memory address as simulated IO. See the IO sample apps to see how to use a physical IO instead.
IOPoint input = IOPoint.CreateDigitalInput(controller, userBufferAddress, INPUT_INDEX); // Create a simulated IOpoint using userBuffer memory.
//uint firmwareioAddress = controller.FirmwareAddressGet(ioAddress);
if (controller.RecorderEnabledGet() == true) // Check if the recorder is running already. If it is, stop it.
controller.RecorderStop(); // Stop recording.
controller.RecorderReset(); // Reset controller.
controller.RecorderPeriodSet(RECORD_PERIOD_SAMPLES); // Configure recorder to record every 'n' samples (Every 'n' ms)
controller.RecorderCircularBufferSet(false); // Do not use a circular buffer
controller.RecorderDataCountSet(VALUES_PER_RECORD); // Configure the number of values for each record. (how many things to record)
controller.RecorderDataAddressSet(0, axis.AddressGet(RSIAxisAddressType.RSIAxisAddressTypeACTUAL_POSITION)); // Configure the recoder to record values from this address (1st recorded address)
controller.RecorderDataAddressSet(1, input.AddressGet()); // Configure the recoder to record values from this address (2nd recorded address)
controller.RecorderStart(); // Start recording.
controller.OS.Sleep(RECORD_TIME); // Put this thread to sleep for some milliseconds.
int recordsAvailable = controller.RecorderRecordCountGet(); // find out how many records were recorded. (Get the number of records that are stored and ready for reading)
Console.WriteLine("There are {0} Records available.\n", recordsAvailable); // Print the number of records recorded.
for (int i = 0; i < recordsAvailable; i++) // Check every record recorded.
controller.RecorderRecordDataRetrieve(); // Retrieve one record of recorded data.
double positionRecord = controller.RecorderRecordDataDoubleGet(0);// Get the value from the 1st specified address. /use double
var digitalInputsValue = controller.RecorderRecordDataValueGet(1); // Get the value from the 2nd specified address.
if ((digitalInputsValue & input.MaskGet()) == input.MaskGet()) // We are checking to see if the digital input 1 bit changes. If it does then we record the position when that input went high.

Console.WriteLine("Your encoder position was: " + positionRecord + " when the input triggered.");
controller.RecorderStop(); // Stop recording.
controller.RecorderReset(); // Reset controller.
