We are developing a NEW feature for our SIM-ALP2 Analog Simulator. The feature will allow it to sweep or step through analog values automatically. We would like YOUR input. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts on how we can make this feature better.
To access this feature you will go into a normal analog simulation mode such as "Current Source". The primary manual functions still work as simple as always. The up button increases the analog signal and the down button decreases the analog signal.
With this new feature, pressing the OK button will bring up options of "Sweep Cycle", "Step Cycle", or "Custom Profile".
The "Sweep Cycle" will ramp the analog signal up from the start value to the final value over a set time the return to the start value and repeat.
The "Step Cycle" will step up the analog signal in settable increments over a set time from the start value to the final value then return to the start value and repeat.
The "Custom Profile" will allow users to enter custom values for the simulator to sequence through over time. This could be used to simulate specific sequences of events in a process.
Also pressing the OK during any of the cycles will pause the analog simulator at the current value. Then pressing OK again will resume the cycle.
