The Unity Totalizer block does not work in an identical manner to Concept

Goals and Symptoms

Does the Unity Totalizer block operate in an identical manner to the Concept Totalizer?

Facts and Changes

No. The Unity Totalizer currently handles the "Done" output differently from Concept.
In Concept the "Done" output will turn on each time the Totalizer reaches its "Threshold" value. The "Done" output will continue to fire even if the CTER value has reached its maximum value of 65535.

In Unity the Totalizer will turn its "Done" output on each time the Totalizer reaches its "Threshold" value. However the "Done" output will stop firing when the CTER value reaches 65535. This difference will require the user to reset CTER value if he wants to use the "Done" bit in a manner similar to Concept.
The difference is expected to be corrected with the release of Unity 6.0. Unity and Concept will then work in an identical manner in this respect.

Causes and Fixes

The Unity Totalizer block does not work in an identical manner to Concept. This applies to any Unity version <6.0 .
