Abstract

The production monitoring simulator provides a software means for simulating a complex realtime event for laboratory use, problem determination or trouble shooting purposes. Included is the capability to vary multiple waveforms to a wide range of specifications, while retaining individual control of each waveform.

Discrete Production Monitoring Simulator

The production monitoring simulator provides a software means for simulating a complex realtime event for laboratory use, problem determination or trouble shooting purposes. Included is the capability to vary multiple waveforms to a wide range of specifications, while retaining individual control of each waveform.

The simulator is a multiple point, pulse output digital signal generator with single point operations to vary the on and off level signal durations and, in addition, includes the capacity to terminate the train of pulse signals in either the on or off state. The simulator has five common functions: 1. Set the duration of off time (x) for a designated output point. 2. Set the duration of on time (y) for a designated output point. 3. Activate pulse output with a designated termination point. 4. Stop the train of output pulses in the "off" state at a designated point. 5. Stop the train of output pulses in the "on" state at a designated point.

Referring to the examples in the figures, Fig. 1 shows time off (x) and time on
(Y) set to equal values with the output activated for 4 full cycles and stopped in the off state. Fig. 2 illustrates a pulse train wherein time x is set to one and a half the duration of time y, the output is activated for 3 full cycles and termination is in the off state. The example of Fig. 3 shows time y set to one third the value of time x, the output activated for three and a half cycles and te...
