Output Signal Value Syntax

    Last Modified: September 6, 2017

    States require Boolean statements to set output signal values. Statements include the channel or variable name and a keyword that defines the signal value.

    Follow these guidelines when writing output signal values:

    • You must use the channel name or variable name defined in the Name column of I/O Configuration table. Do not use the name defined in the Hardware name column.
    • Keywords are not case-sensitive.
    • Only one state machine can write to a given output channel or variable.
    • The User Program resolves the innermost state for a given output or variable.
