In this step by step example, we will configure and execute our first command input . During that, we will get to know a part of the functionality of the command input. After that we will take a closer look at special functions.

We create a new project in the Editor and include the simulator driver (if it does not exist already). We use this driver for simplicity reasons, although this will lead to some limitations regarding command input.

Please consider that you will need e.g. the IEC870 driver with an appropriate 60870 device for full support of all command input options. This driver supports COT (cause of transmisison) and SBO. This functionality is required for the watchdog timer and the SPO procedure.

The use of the included 'Project Wizard' is recommended. It helps you to create a basic project structure and saves you the trouble of manually defining process pictures.
