Suppressing and Deleting Sensors

You can suppress one or more sensors at a time.

To suppress or unsuppress sensors:

  • In the FeatureManager design tree, in the Sensors folder, select one or more sensors and do one of the following:
    • Click Edit > Suppress (or Unsuppress) and then select This Configuration, All Configurations, or Specified Configurations.
    • Right-click and select Suppress or Unsuppress (applies to only the current configuration).
    • Set the suppression state in a design table using:
      • Column header: $STATE@sensor_name (for example, $STATE@Mass1)
      • For each configuration: S for suppressed or U for unsuppressed

    Suppressed sensors appear in gray in the FeatureManager design tree, and are not calculated for the model.

    To delete a sensor, right-click it and select Delete . The sensor is removed from all configurations of the model.
