ANSWER

 

You must create the 3-Variable Control (TVC) control mode with Displacement as the primary control mode first (Figure 1).

Adding Acceleration as an additional control mode in 3-Variable Control (TVC)


  1. Click on the Control Modes tab. 
  2. In the Input Resources select the Station tab and then expand the list for the channel.
  3. You should see the signals for Displacement, Acceleration and Velocity.  Select the Acceleration signal.
  4.  Click the plus (+) button to add Acceleration as a control mode.
  5. You can do the same for Velocity if desired.
  6. In the main panel tree view you can re-order the mode by dragging them up or down if desired.
