E+PLC400 : heater controlled with PWM

I've got a PIDPID-loop for a Heat-Cool application. The heater is a resistor. How can I change the analog output of the PIDPID-loop to a digital signal, for example PulseWidth modulation?

    Hi Mertens,

    To change to PWM, you need to go to the DO16 output card, and change the output type to Time Proportioned.



    Once that is done, you should map the rWorkingOutput to the Demand Output fields (REAL).
