The parameter panel lets you give the socket a name and optionally allocate it to a room.
Save output if bus fault
If the socket is currently active and the bus connection to the CPU fails (e.g. the 24V power supply to the module fails), then activating this option will guarantee that the socket remains active even in a fail state. If this option is not activated, then the socket is reset after every bus connection failure.
In safety-critical controllers, it should be carefully examined whether this function should be activated, since this output is kept active if the system fails.
Reserve (hide in visualization)
If you have a socket in your system that you do not user, you can hide this socket in the app “sockets” by activating the option “reserve (hide in visualization) (located in the parameter panel). (To unhide, the socket can be found in the app “hardware”).
If you want to change the mode, i.e. convert socket to a digital output, then this can be done by changing the mode in the socket’s parameter panel.
