Model variables for the IO generator

Only three basic objects are required to represent all of the components in a piece of PLC hardware. The user must furnish them with different default parameters - especially if automatic and dynamic calculation of addresses by the so-called IO generator is desired. Four of these parameters control structure formation, while the others are responsible for creating addresses. The IO generator creates the start addresses for the input and output groups based on the defined structure.

The functioning and parameterization of the IO generator is admittedly not described here. However, its parameters may also be of interest to other areas of the PLC discipline, which is why their definitions and usage are mentioned here once again. The names of the default parameters are stored as a model variable.

Parameters for structure formation:

Parameters for address generation:
