This video gives basic information on Using the FileDel "Delete File" instruction in the Do-more Designer software. It presents information that is commonly missed by users. This WILL NOT be a complete tutorial for the instruction but rather a supplement to the help file and customer experience.
This instruction is used to delete a file that resides under a File System. Notice that the File name, here, is in quotation marks. Anytime you use text in these fields, these must be here, so that the instruction knows you are not using a tag. That being said, you can use a string tags for these fields. Make sure to note that this is an edge triggered instruction. It requires an off to on transition. This instruction can be used in Task or Program but cannot be used in Subroutines or Interrupt service routines. Only BRX PLCs have the SD Card File System, but all Do-mores CPUs have a useable RAM File System, if they have version 2.0 firmware or above. The utility program called Browse PLC File Systems to manage the contents of any file system. This can be found, while the designer software is connected to the PLc, and selecting PLC-> Browse PLC File system.
