Block diagram of the Temperature Software Module
This module is responsible for the A/D conversion of the analog signal from the temperature
transducer. The Signal Acquisition module provides a raw temperature value to the Average
Calculation module. The module also performs various self-tests and consistency checks to
ensure proper operation and reports errors and failures to the Alarming Module.
This component averages the raw measured temperature values over an interval of 1 second.
The averaged values are converted to the user-selected unit.
This component generates high/low alarms if an alarm limit is exceeded. Additionally, a
technical alarm is generated if no temperature can be measured.
Temperature User Controls
This component controls the user-selected settings:
• Set temperature alarm limits
• Select the temperature measurement units
