Description: The deadband block generates an output signal, which is the input signal reduced by a zone of lost motion about the signal’s 0 value. Use this block to simulate play in mechanical systems, such as gears or chains.

Dead Band: Indicates the width of the zone of lost motion about the input signal’s 0 value. The default is 0.2. You can enter a value in hexadecimal notation or as a C expression
