StruxureWare Network 8000 conversion program is changing some Logic blocks to a block type called Invert.

Issue

StruxureWare Network 8000 conversion program is changing some "Logic" blocks to a block type called "Invert".   Could this be causing missing pointer issues?

Product Line

TAC I/A Series, SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

SBO 1.2 and later Network 8000 conversion program with any Network 8000 GCM file.

Cause

This is as designed; see Resolution for explanation.

 

Resolution

A Logic object is 'Migrated" as an Invert object if only used as a single invert gate. The other objects that reference that object as a pointer are changed also to reflect the block name 'Invert'. This is documented in the Technical Reference Guide in section 89.7.
