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 multiple stages and enabling a single stage. This instruction also doubles as a Stage marker instruction. You will not need to use a separate stage instruction for the Stage you are converging to. How this works is when the Stages from this section are all enabled and then this condition is true. It will disable the stages in the Here and then enable this stage. This parameter is satisfied when using a numeric variable and that value is a non-zero or in the case of a Boolean the bit is ON. Stages can only be entered in Program code blocks and this instruction can only target or reference stages within the same Program code block. This instruction is a 'power-rail' instruction. That means that even though it is displayed on the left hand side of the logic, it is actually entered in on the right-hand side of the logic and then collapses down to the Power rail.
