This instruction is used to skip over some code and arrive at the label instruction in your code. Once you have skipped to the location of the Label you will then continue on from that point in the ladder code. This instruction can only be used to skip to a label that located within the same Program or Task as the instruction. If the Label that you are skipping to is before this GOTO instruction, this will creating a looping action, and make this a Yielding instruction. With these looping applications it is important to monitor the time slice of your code block and also the demand that this will be placing on the CPU scan time. If this ends up causing issues the best starting places would be to adjust your code block yield settings or your CPU Default watchdog Timeout.
