Certain ION modules will allow inputs to be connect to another module's setup register (ex. Nominal Voltage in the Sag/Swell module). Most common application would be pulling a numeric setup register into one of the inputs of an Arithmetic module.
The procedure is as follows:
Only numeric variable setup registers can be linked (i.e. enumerated setup registers like PM1 Volts Mode won't work)
Pulse/Boolean type inputs can't be connected
Not sure if this is your expertise or not, but wonder if you know how I can do the same thing in designer?
I know you can directly link the input to a ION register address by Ctrl+Alt+click the "ION" icon in the toolbar which corresponds to setup 5 in your post, but where to find the desired ION handle register address?
It's been a few years since I've tried this but I believe if you hold just Ctrl (or maybe its Alt or maybe Shift?) when you click on the ION icon on the toolbar in Designer, the dialog will list Setup registers instead of Output registers as you click on the modules.
