How to detect a power supply failure on the AMO0410

If you configure a BMXAMO0410 with I/O data type: Topological, you will have in the related IODDT of a channel of type T_ANA_OUT_BMX, a bit fault for the power supply (INT_PS_FLT). It is extracted from explicit data (%MW2) updated with a Read_Status from the application.

If you configure a BMXAMO0410 with I/O data type: Device DDT, you will have in the related DDDT of type T_U_ANA_STD_OUT_4 no fault information. To get it, you must execute a Read_Status in your application with a dedicated DDT passed as parameter of the Read_Status.

By definition, a DDDT only contains implicit variables. It does not contain explicit variables like fault information. It is true for all I/O modules and all DDDT since the beginning of DDDT. So, there is no bug only a misuse and this PCR must be rejected.
