|error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.|
If the countdown of the watchdog timer has not yet started, this VI starts the countdown. If the watchdog object is running or disabled, this VI restarts the countdown of the watchdog timer. If the watchdog object is expired, this VI restarts the countdown of the watchdog timer only if you set reset watchdog after expire? to TRUE.
