This document describes the operation of the function blocks available for sequence control through a few simple examples, describing the various possibilities of the library.
These function blocks are included in the SE.AppSequence library and are used to monitor and manage control sequences.
This article describes how to unpack a 16-Bit Analog value acquired via MODBUS communication, into its individual bit components that can then be used as an Array of 16 Digital states. This is a common practice in many industry automation implementations to optimize the traffic between devices and as a strategy to reduce the number of variables read in from a device.
