    Thanks all.

    Also i would like to know is there any way to send and receive integer from PLC via Profinet instead of using Group inputs and outputs.

    Set it up as an analog signal.  Refer to system parameter manual, inputs/outputs.

    Hello all.

    I have got an error when executing the following Instruction:
    Var Signalgi PINFEED_CNT;
    var num count;

    Am getting Alias IO instruction error.

    The group input needs to be setup in the EIO configuration file not in RAPID.
