Adding a named RI (FBD) does not appear as a Input in AS or ES

Issue

Adding a named RI (Function Block Diagram) does not appear as a Input in AS or ES

Product Line

SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

StruxureWare Building Operation site with AS or ES using Function Block program

Cause

Adding a RI (FBD) with the name for example '_PB', it does not appear as a Input in AS or ES

Resolution

It shouldn't appear as an input on the AS or ES since it is only an input on the Function Block program. You must create the input on the resistive (physical) input on the AS and bind it to the real input on the Function Block.

Function Block is a program running on the AS or ES and only will talk to the outputs when bound to the I/O or Input Output object.
