I *think* (but am not 100%) that this bit won't reset if the rung-in condition to the FSC instruction stays true. Typically, I only trigger the FSC instruction for one scan, e.g. when the operator...

I'm 99% sure that you can also select multiple AOI's and drag and drop from one program to the other. Why can't you select multiple AOI's and export? Į\_(ツ)_/Į

I've not used it yet, though I'm about to. My standard for a long while has been v29, but I'm about to use a 1756-L82ES Guard Logix on a project, which will necessitate at least v31.

My best guess would be that your "Bottle Present" sensor is coming on just before your "Capper Pulse" input. So, "Bottle Present" comes on, puts a 1 in M10:7. A few scans later, you get your "Capper...
