In this step, we will carry out some preparatory tasks prior to configuring the PFS. We will create a project, a driver is implemented and the necessary variables for our example are created.

Create a new project, with the name "PfsSample", in a new workspace.

In the context menu of the project select Project configuration and RT changeable files.

Deselect the Do not generate and transfer checkbox for the PFS. This way, any changes made to the PFS in the Editor will be recompiled; changes made in the Runtime environment will however be lost.

Deselect the Do not decompile checkbox for the PFS. Changes made in the Runtime are transferred to the Editor with decompiling.

Integrate the Simulation driver. Accept all settings of the configuration.

Create the following variables:

HD-Bit; Offset 10; Bit 0; Name: Horn

HD-Bit; Offset 10; Bit 1; Name: Light I

HD-Bit; Offset 10; Bit 2; Name: Light II

HD-Bit; Offset 10; Bit 3; Name: Waste water pump

HD-Word; Offset 11; Name: Heating P I

HD-Word; Offset 12; Name: Heating P II

If the window Project info is not open when starting the Editor, you can open it with the command Project window in the menu Option.

Activate the PFS by clicking on the appropriate register in the project window. The empty PFS workspace should now be displayed onscreen.

Maximize the window Project info by activating the option Float in main window or deactivating the option Allow docking in the context menu of the window. An enlarged display area within the project window proves very useful when configuring the PFS.
