This process controls the blink behavior of the USER1 LED on the front panel of a CompactRIO controller.

Actions Performed

  • Defines and implements the default behavior of the USER LED: blinking at a rate of once every two seconds after the device starts up.
  • Implements custom LED behavior that other processes request, such as blinking twice per second when a process returns an unhandled error and the device enters Safe Mode.

Communicating with this Process

  • Any process can set the blinking pattern of the USER1 LED via the Set Mode VI.
  • The Blink Process palette contains VIs for initializing and calling this process in application software.
