  10. Hi Friend,
    I’m Ebin. I want to know something about ABB relay Logic Digital signal. Here I have to simulate or force some Digital signal in the logic especially Goose signal and Logic gate signal. Could you explain me is there any possibilities?
    And I have seen in some relay logic there were already forced some digital signal in the logic block.
    So if i want to force some Digital signal for testing purpose then what should i do?
    Please suggest to me.
    Thank you
