Bus in Simulink

Bus in Simulink

Bus in Simulink


I am a begginer in simulink and I am trying to pass a structure from one block to another block.

My first approach is utilizing a bus to send the structure from the first block to the second one, but I do not know how to connect both blocks with a bus. Every time I connect them, it appears an only cable. I gave a name to the cable and I tried to use "Simulink.BusElement". I changed the dimensions to 5, but it happens nothing.

Thank you very much in advance for your time.

Best regars,


RE: Bus in Simulink

can you paste a screenshot of what you have? I don't actually have a BusEelement on this install.

you need input and output lines, a bus creator, which multiplexes the signals, and a bus selector, which demuxes them. The latter two blocks control the dimension of the bus, the bus itself is just a connector.

you may find Bus to vector is a more useful block.

RE: Bus in Simulink

Hello Greg,

thank you very much for your quick answer.

in Picture 1, I have both blocks and I have connected them with a wire, but I do not know if the wire behaves as a bus. The name of the wire is "a".

in Picture 2, I have used Simulink.BusElement(I think is a class), and I have changed the value of "Dimensions" per 5.

I do not know if I am actually using a bus to connect both blocks or a wire.

Best regards, wasomix

LibreOffice opens DOCX files... though not always perfectly. However, it's available for free for various platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OSX, etc.).

A little off-topic, but good to know nonetheless.
