Captures a constant value and issues an action with the constant value if the value changes.

This operator performs an Action ("Actions - Overview") as soon as a constant floating point value changes at the input. The input value is captured and used as Value for the action.
Like the Capture Action operator ("Capture Action"), this operator provides an interface from signal processing to program control.
