Increased Productivity Crunch numbers easily in ladder programs Simple project Structured project Inline ST (Structured Text) Online monitoring with inline ST Include ST in a ladder program to deal with numerical and string operations. Using inline ST can save time in the program development process and is more efficient with program memory. Monitor ST and ladder devices without having to change screens. Make changes to current device values using the same operation as with ladder programs. This dynamic view of associated data helps to speed up development and debugging processes. For example, perform the following calculations and convert the results to real numbers: When Signal01 is ON, divide the sum of Input01 and Input02 by Input03. When Signal01 is OFF, divide Input01 by Input03. Reduced Downtime Accelerated Debugging Use the split-pane display to view the current value of word devices. Edit current device values using the same method as standard ladder programs. Robust Security By using inline ST instead of just ladder for these operations, the result is easier to read and saves program memory. 7 GX Works2 GX Works2 8 Increased Productivity Increased Productivity Use function blocks for common operations Simple project Structured project Simplify complex programs using structured projects What is a FB? Advantages of program structuralization Function blocks allow selections of commonly used code to be easily reused and shared among projects.
