The I/O status of the terminal block can be checked from the Marking Builder 2 software. Users can perform monitoring, or use the built-in simulation function to simulate the turning ON and OFF of the output terminals. This makes it possible to simply and accurately check the connections with external equipment.
It is possible to record the operating screen of the "Marking Builder 2" program to create and play back video files. These functions enable the user to create setup procedures for starting the software and video manuals for operator education.
