Highlights in SDK 4.4, MultiTool version 7.2

Support for CANmoon I/O diagnostics

CANmoon is not a part of the SDK, but a new version of CANmoon has been released together with the new SDK.

A new I/O diagnostics feature has been added to CANmoon. The I/O diagnostics feature includes two new views in CANmoon: I/O and Trend. In I/O view it's possible to see the states of the I/O pins of a selected control unit. In trend view the same values can be seen graphically.

The feature has to be taken into use in the Diagnostics tab in MultiTool. It is available for the EC44 and 5050 units, and will be added to S-series devices when they are updated.

Modular slaves

Slaves with extension modules

Support for modular CANopen slaves with extension modules has been added to MultiTool. These kind of slaves use the same eds file for different assemblies of the slave, and can include variable number of I/O or other features.

If a slave uses extension modules, MultiTool will show a selection dialog where the correct extension modules are selected.

DO diagnostics in Sensors and Actuators library

New blocks have been added to Sensors and Actuators library to simplify the DO diagnostics in nonsafe applications:
 - DOControlsAndDiagnostics for sourcing DO pins
 - DOGNDControlsAndDiagnostic for sinking DO pins
 - DOValveEcoControlAndDiagnostics for DO Eco mode
