How can I force outputs on the Advantys STB island without having a master device or PLC connected on the field bus?

Outputs can be forced without control from the master by selecting the test mode option online with the configuration software. Once online in test mode, there are two options for forcing outputs. One option is by double clicking on the output module and selecting the I/O Image tab. Then expand the output data parameter and under the Value column, the output value can be changed. The second option is to select the I/O Image Animation view and modify the corresponding output data register or bit. This can be done by clicking on the value and overwriting it when highlighted.
