Convert from length units to desired length units

  • Library:
  • Aerospace Blockset / Utilities / Unit Conversions

Description

The Length Conversion block computes the conversion factor from specified input length units to specified output length units and applies the conversion factor to the input signal.

The Length Conversion block port labels change based on the input and output units selected from the Initial unit and the Final unit lists.

Ports

Input

expand all

Length, specified as a scalar or array, in initial length units.

Dependencies

The input port label depends on the Initial unit setting.

Data Types: double

Output

expand all

Length, returned as a scalar or array, in final length units.

Dependencies

The output port label depends on the Final unit setting.

Data Types: double

Parameters
