If the fist pass is at the top of the main ladder, the ensuing logic instructions in the rest of the program could over-ride it what i want to accomplish in the first pass. Am I out to lunch here?
If there is a chance what is written from a First-Pass could be overwritten later in the scan I would put a XIO First-Pass on the other rungs so they were not processed on the first scan.
Also, Since the First-Scan writes 0 to your N7:0 it could do that first, then the rest of your calculations could be completed the same scan without causing any problem.
