Monitoring inputs
« on: January 21, 2022, 08:28:36 PM »

I’m building a basic application and to verify it’s working correctly I would like to be able monitor how inputs and outputs vary as I adjust connected hardware, in my experience with other plc stuff there is usually a monitoring mode where you can simply see your program and how it behaves in real time.

Is there something like this I can do? Or some other way of achieving what I’m after?

There is no monitoring/debugging mode like you will find on some other systems. To monitor values you use the Plus+1 Service Tool.

There are a number of pre-configured signals including all the I/O pins. For any other values in your program that you want to monitor you need to add checkpoints.

If you are not familiar with the Service Tool this video may help.
