Coil & Input Status with CI867 As Slave with AC800M
I'm using AC800M with CI867 as slave, and i need to configure Coil status, input status and holding registers.
I could configure Holding register with the name %MW0, %MW1, with variables INT in Access Variables -> Address.
But i cannot configure coil status and input status. I tried with %IX1, %QX1, and doesn't work.
How can i configure this registers as slave in AC800M?

When you work with holding or input registers (16-bit) you could use the format "%MW##" for addressing the registers, in this case the ## is a decimal number, but when you use coils or bit variables the address should be in Octal.
Check the file attached and Control Builder help for further information.
I apologize, I have not read that you are using the controller as a slave, in that case in the access variables field you can use the following format:
Holding registers: %RXXXXX, where XXXXX is the number in decimal of the register 40001, 40100 etc.
Coils: %XXX; where XXX is the number of the coil in octal, %X215, %X216, %X217, %X220 etc.

Hope this helps.
