Arithmetic module setup and calculations
When the Arithmetic module has at least one N/A input, its output equals N/A. In other words, when the Arithmetic module has available inputs and N/A inputs, the downstream linked ION modules cannot simply ignore the N/A inputs while only utilizing the available inputs.
To convert the N/A to zero, you may use the Convert module. This can be done by linking the N/A signal through a Convert module and configuring the 'N/A convert' register to convert to 0. Then feed the output of the Convert module to the Arithmetic module.
If you cannot predict which signal will be N/A, run each of them through a Convert module and set the 'N/A convert' register to convert to 0 before linking to the Arithmetic module.
In PME 8 and newer versions of software, VIP Arithmetic modules provide an 'N/A conversion' option to configure as part of the setup registers. By right-clicking the Arithmetic module, you can access the module setup and edit parameters as seen in the image below.
