This instruction is used to read parameters from a GS drive that has been set up using Ethernet IO mastering. If this drive is not setup as an Ethernet IO slave. Stop, and go set that up first. This instruction will only need to be used for parameters that are not part the heap structure that the Ethernet IO creates. The Project browser can show the contents of this heap item. Select insert to see a full list of drive parameters that you can select. You can read up to 50 parameters per instruction Notice that there is an edge triggered flag to this instruction. You will need to create logic to provide the triggering. A good starting point would be to use rising edge ST4, or 1 second bit, so the instruction will be triggered once per second.
