This video gives basic information on Using the FILENEWFLDR "Make New File Folder" 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 creature a new file folder on a File System. Only BRX PLCs have the SD Card File System, but all Do-mores have a useable RAM File System if they have above version 2.0 firmware. Notice that the Folder name by default shows quotation marks, this indicates that you are using text and not a string. Now if you want to use a string tag, just insert the tag here without the quotation marks. This folder name must use the entire path from the root and do not forget to use the back slash in front of the folder name. This instruction can be used in Task or Program but cannot be used in Subroutines or Interrupt service routines. There is a 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.
