PAUSE Pause Command (Execute Menu)


Click PAUSE or select the menu command Execute > Pause to momentarily halt the execution of the program in the simulated PLC without changing any of the data (such as the state of the outputs). To resume the execution of the program, turn off the Pause function. The program then starts at the instruction where execution had been halted.

If a STEP 7 application is connected to the simulated PLC, using Pause may cause the application to time out and disconnect. If this happens, turn off the Pause function and reconnect the STEP 7 application.
