Swap ASCII Characters


Because DataWorx and DirectLogic PLCs interpret ASCII characters opposite of each other you may find that ASCII characters are entered incorrectly in DataWorx.  To resolve this issue swap the characters before sending the data to DataWorx.


This DirectSoft Project illustrates how to swap ASCII characters within a word at V3300.  The c1 contact activates the code.  Downloadable versions for each DirectLogic family are below.
