About this task

If you exported modules containing PID, PID Pre-Processors logic blocks, or both, the modules do not receive the PID and PID Pre-Processor changes when brought back into the application (either by selecting the module from the Custom folder in the control block palette of the Logic view, or by right-clicking a module category in the Control view and selecting New, and then adding it from the Module Selection dialog box).

To upgrade custom control modules (recommended method):

  1. Create an application containing your custom modules at a version prior to Release 5.0 if you created the original module prior to Release 5.0. Otherwise, create an application containing your custom modules using Release 5.0.
  2. Open this file with the tool Release 5.1 or later software and upgrade the CAF (including the modules) to the new release. See the Upgrading a System section.
  3. View and verify the logic of your modules.
    Note: You may need to make connections between the PID and PID Pre-Processor logic blocks.
  4. Export the module, and use this new version for all future applications.

To upgrade custom control modules (alternative method):

  1. In the Control View, add your custom module from the palette (New Module Selection).
  2. View the logic of the module.
  3. Add a new PID Pre-Processor block, and a new PID block.
  4. Connect the inputs of both blocks, and connect the outputs of the PID Pre-Processor to the PID inputs.
  5. Delete the output connections of the old PID block and connect the outputs of the new PID block to the outputs.
  6. Delete the old PID and PID Pre-Processor blocks.
  7. View and verify the logic of your modules.
  8. Export the module, and use this new version for all future applications.
