About this task

A Hybrid Activity block contains state-based logic. You can define different logic for each state in the chosen enumeration set. See the Logic Tab Screen description in the User Interface section. For information on the Hybrid Activity container block, see the Container Block section in the Logic section .


  1. In Logic View, drag and drop the Hybrid Activity Container block from the Control Block palette to the logic diagram.
  2. Select the enumeration set to use for the block:

    If you choose to change the enum set for the state output, and the enum set you are choosing has fewer members than the current enum set, check the state sections to be deleted to ensure that there are no blocks or connections in them. This does not include inputs and outputs.

    1. Right-click the Hybrid Activity and select View > Details. The Details dialog box appears.
    2. Click Edit.
    3. Select the desired enumeration set to use for the States Text attribute/parameter.
    4. Click Apply.
    5. Click Close.
    Note: You may need to view another block and view the Hybrid Activity block to refresh the enumeration set visible in the Logic View.
  3. Double-click the Hybrid Activity block or right-click the block and select View Logic to access the Hybrid Activity’s Logic View.
    Note: By default, the Hybrid Activity’s State Table’s State is selected (blue background).
  4. With the State header selected, create logic that determines how the states change in this view.
  5. Double-click a state (The logic you created for the State header is hidden.) and create logic for this particular state.
  6. Repeat Step 5 for all states.
    The following figures show the Hybrid Activity logic of the Proportional Box Heating Control module. The State block is the HTG-OUTSTATE. This example shows details for only two of the module's seven states. See Heating Proportional Valve v51 in the Output Control Modules section for more information on the Proportional Box Heating Control module.
