UDP Read block

Block Category: Real-Time

Description: The UDP Read block reads data from the UDP bus.

Troubleshooting: A firewall may prevent access to certain ports, prevent network access for newly installed unknown applications, or prevent access to UDP on public networks. Contact your IT department to get such issues resolved.

Data Element Type: Controls the data type of each output connector and the offset into packet.

Data Pins: Specifies the number of input connectors (128 max).

Host Name or IP address: Specifies the IP address or host name of the target.

Pack Offsets: Iterates over all the connectors and assigns consecutive ascending offsets to each connector.

Packet Byte Size: Specifies the size of packet to be read (512 bytes max).

Set All Pin Types = 1: Sets the data type of all connectors to be same as connector 1, and then performs a Pack Offset.

UDP Port: Specifies the port to exchange data. It is recommended to use ports greater than 49151.
