Actuator Sensor

Actuator Sensor:
  • Monitors an Actuator
     
  • When the Actuator being monitored starts, it sends one positive pulse to the connected controller(s)
     
  • When the Actuator being monitored stops, it sends one negative pulse to the connected controller(s)
Actuator:
  • Name of the actuator being monitored
Note:
  • Actuator being monitored and the actuator sensor must be on the same object
Actuator:
  • The type of Sensor
Name:
  • Sensor name
Pin:
  • Enabled: 
    • Always display the Sensor
  • Disabled: 
    • Only display when the State Mask group the Sensor is linked to is being displayed
Checkbox:
  • Enabled:
    • Sensor is turned on
  • Disabled:
    • Sensor is turned off
True Level Trigger:
  • Enabled:
    • Actuator being monitored starts:
      • Sends a positive pulse to the connected controller(s) with each logic tic
    • Actuator being monitored stops:
      • Sends one negative pulse to connected controller(s)
    • Actuator being monitored is inactive:
      • No pulse sent
  • Disabled:
    • Actuator being monitored starts:
      • Sends one positive pulse to the connected controller(s)
    • Actuator being monitored stops:
      • Sends one negative pulse to the connected controller(s)
    • Actuator being monitored is inactive:
      • No pulse sent
  • The default logic tic rate is 60 per second
False Level Trigger:
  • Enabled:
    • Actuator being monitored starts:
      • Sends a positive pulse to the connected controller(s)
    • Actuator being monitored stops:
      • Sends one negative pulse to the connected controller(s) with each logic tic
    • Actuator being monitored is inactive:
      • Sends one negative pulse to the connected controller(s) with each logic tic
  • Disabled:
    • Actuator being monitored starts:
      • Sends one positive pulse to the connected controller(s)
    • Actuator being monitored stops:
      • Sends one negative pulse to connected controller(s)
    • Actuator being monitored is inactive:
      • No pulse sent to the connected controller(s)
  • The default logic tic rate is 60 per second
Skip:
  • Used with True Level Trigger and False Level Trigger
     
  • Enabled: Skips the number of logic tics entered before sending the next pulse
Level:
  • Enabled:
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor belongs to to a State Mask group it doesn't belong to:
      • Sensor is deactivated
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor doesn't belong to to a State Mask group it belongs to:
      • Sensor is activated
         
      • Sends one negative pulse to connected controller(s)
  • Disabled:
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor belongs to to a State Mask group it doesn't belong to:
      • Sensor is deactivated
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor doesn't belong to to a State Mask group it belongs to:
      • Sensor is activated
         
      • Waiting for input
Tap:
  • Enabled:
    • Actuator being monitored starts:
      • A positive pulse is immediately followed by a negative pulse (next frame)
    • Actuator being monitored stops:
      • No pulse sent
  • Disabled:
    • Actuator being monitored starts:
      • A positive pulse is sent to the connected controller(s)
    • Actuator being monitored stops:
      • A negative pulse is sent to the connected controller(s)
Invert:
  • Inverts the output of the triggers
     
  • A positive trigger event sends a negative pulse
     
  • A negative trigger event sends a positive pulse
Note:
  • Sensors can be connected to more than one controller
     
  • Sensors connected to a controller(s) belong to the same State Mask group(s) as the controller(s)
