Periodically lets a single
Time event through, so that events are output at a steady rate.
This node allows the first
Time event through that is greater than or equal to
Period. After that, it allows the first time event through that is greater than or equal to the next multiple of
Period, and so on.
Periodic Time outputs an event from
Time, it also outputs the data from
Time port should receive a stream of events with increasing time values, such as from the
Refreshed at Time port of a Fire on Display Refresh node or the
time published input port of a protocol composition.
Time port values should increase by an amount smaller than
Period. The smaller the
Time increments, the less variance in the time between output events.
Period is zero or negative, this node doesn’t output any events.
An alternative to this node that fires its own events is Fire Periodically.
