Activated B6 watchdog causes random analog output values


Applies To:

B6

Versions Affected:

Problem was introduced in version: 9159B


Symptoms:

If the B6 watchdog function is activated, unpredictable values are written to the analog output points.

As an example, all of the points on a B6 are configured as outputs and are configured to go to a value of 0 when a watchdog occurs. The values read back from the analog outputs after a watchdog occurs, may read as shown in the following:

Point 0 reads as 1 Point 8 reads as 5137
Point 1 reads as 259 Point 9 reads as 275
Point 2 reads as 5125 Point 10 reads as 277
Point 3 reads as 263 Point 11 reads as 23
Point 4 reads as 5129 Point 12 reads as 281
Point 5 reads as 259 Point 13 reads as 27
Point 6 reads as 269 Point 14 reads as 285
Point 7 reads as 15 Point 15 reads as 31
