|Node name||Specifies the name of this Express VI. You can also double-click the name of this Express VI on the expandable node to edit the name.|
|View Code||Displays the underlying code of this Express VI.|
|Connection Diagram||Shows the I/O connector pinouts on the roboRIO. The highlighted pinouts represent the channels that you configure.|
|Value||Specifies to enable or disable the RSL channel. The default is FALSE, which means the RSL channel is disabled.|
|error in (no error)||Describes error conditions that occur before this node runs.|
|error out||Contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.|
In the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), competitors use the RSL channel on the roboRIO to generate a flag signal for indicating that the robot is ready to operate. The roboRIO calls this flag signal the robot signal light because the RSL LED lights up when the RSL channel returns the flag signal. You also can use the RSL channel for other applications.
The following list describes the caveats for using the RSL channel on the roboRIO:
