This block creates an output for the structure block into the worksheet it was inserted.

When the block is inserted on the worksheet, the name of the structure-block connector can be entered and the data type can be selected.  The name appears on the left side of the block symbol. It must be unambiguous i.e. no other input or output block in the currently edited structure block may bear the same name. Therefore, an unambiguous name is suggested after inserting the block on the worksheet. Any data type defined in the system can be selected.

The input of the output block can be connected with compatible outputs of other blocks in the worksheet. Before connecting the newly created structure block output it must be placed on the symbol of the structure block in the design view.


The parameter dialog can be used to assign a name and select a data type when inserting the function block. When used at a later point, only the name can be changed.


The input depends on the assigned data type.


No signal processing


The input block is colored depending on the data type, just like the signal lines.
