Cause
Error will vary depending on software design.

This article is a result motivated by the following situation:
The custom program required a digital input to be read as a boolean value when detected.

An AND/OR module was first used to acheive this goal and was pointed to as the cause of the error.



Resolution
A fix for this error is to use an ARITHMETIC module to perform the AND/OR operation and then convert the value from the arithmetic module to the desired data type using a CONVERT module.

 

Note:
The arithmetic module can perform any logic functions that the AND/OR module is capable of.
