Questions & Answers
Q: Does the plc scan top to bottom then left to right, or does it scan all inputs top to bottom and then changes outputs?
A: The PLC program scan: Read Inputs --> Execute Ladder --> Update Outputs --> Process HMI --> Process Communications
Q: can you enable/disable nets from the HMI without re-downloading?
A: Not nets specifically. If you know there are portions of code you wish to disable before hand, place them in separate subroutines. You do have the option to stop calling subroutines with memory bits.
Q: Why is there a (-) in front of H in MI8?
A: Its denoting that the entry is in HEX vs DEC
