How to select the real I/O module terminals/channels in CODESYS V3.5 ? Or better to say, How to specify the real physical terminals of analog and digital I/O modules in the CODESYS programm ?

    hello everyone,

    i'm using CODESYS V3.5 to program a physical system with ifm_PLC AC14 series.

    The first step is that i have to be able to connent the PLC system with CODESYS.
    So, i have to define for PLC throgh CODESYS at first the real terminals of I/O modules, which are used for sensors and actuators with coressponding among of DC current/voltage. Thus:

      1) How to select the available I/O modules ? for ex. if i have 2 analog modules and 1 digital module with   
         them factory charc.
      2) How to assign the variables to the used coressponding terminals/channels of the existing analgo or 
         digital I/O ?

    I have searched many times in youtube or google about it, but i did not found something relevant for my case espically in CODESYS V3.5 .
    I have just found this below example which i exactly mean that, but it's unfortunatly for codesys V2 and i don't find it in CODESYS V3.
    So, I am really thankful if somebody could help me.

    Hi essii69,
    did you installed the device package of your device? If you right-click on the project line (in "Devices" sub-window) and you click on "Add device", do you find IFM PLCs?

    I advise you to start from a template project or an example project from IFM, so the hardware is already configured in the project.

    Why don't you ask IFM support? they would be the best resource for their hardware
