  2. Select the PLC Project Investigation child node.
  3. Click the Properties link in the details pane of the PLC Project Investigation node.

      • Select or clear the Read data blocks check box.
  6. Click the Controller configuration button in the OK window.

    Redundant controllers are not supported.
