This video gives basic information on Using the JMP "Jump to Stage" 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 transition from one stage to another. All Stage programming instructions can only be entered in a Program code block. And jump instruction can only target Stages within the same program code block When this Jump is executed, it does NOT cause an immediate exit of the current stage it only disables the current Stage and enables the target Stage. So, if this jump is triggered, this logic is not skipped and even though it is after the jump in the logic it will be evaluated on the same scan as the jump instruction. Now if the target stage, if below the jump in the ladder scan will be evaluated the same scan as the Jump is triggered. If before in the ladder scan it will be evaluated the next scan on the controller. Once a stage is terminated any out coils will be turned off as part of the termination behavior.
