NT_Reboot 1:

The Windows NT operating system can be restarted with the aid of the "NT_Reboot" function block. The function largely corresponds to the Restart command on the Windows taskbar. A delay before execution of the Restart command can be defined via the DELAY parameter.


    NETID  : T_AmsNetId;
    START  : BOOL;

NETID: It is possible here to provide the AmsNetId of the TwinCAT computer that is to be re-booted (type: T_AmsNetID). If the restart is to take place on the local computer, an empty string can be entered.

DELAY: The delay time, in seconds, before the Restart command is executed.

START: the block is activated by a positive edge at this input.

TMOUT: States the length of the timeout that may not be exceeded by execution of the ADS command.


    BUSY  : BOOL;
    ERR   : BOOL;

BUSY: When the function block is activated this output is set. It remains set until a feedback is received.

ERR: If an error should occur during the transfer of the command, then this output is set once the BUSY output was reset.

ERRID: Supplies the ADS error number when the ERR output is set.
