The Element Window Function blocks are icons that, when selected, access instruction sets in the RoboPro software to perform the operations identified by the icons. They are located on the left-hand side of the screen.
The Flowchart When function blocks are placed on the screen and connected, a flowchart is created.

Motor Outputs provide power to devices. The image of the function block can be changed from a motor to an electromagnet, lamp, solenoid, or buzzer to match the physical component that it controls. Motor Output Select Interface Connection Select Speed, Brightness, or Intensity Choose Image Choose Action

Lamp Outputs Lamp output program elements switch one of the interfaces single-pole outputs O1-O8. You connect the other lamp contact with the ground socket of the interface (). O1-O8 outputs only work in one direction. Multiple wires can be piggybacked in the ground socket.
Start & End The Start and End function blocks begin and end a program.
The program to control two output devices might look like this. Start Program M1 Output On M2 Output On End Program Flowchart
The Time Delay is used to introduce a delay in a program. Time Delay A time step can be set for seconds, minutes, or hours.
Digital Inputs Inputs The Input function block queries the state of a digital input I1-I8 on the interface. A digital input can only have one of two states, 0 or 1. Examples Pushbutton Switch Pushed or not pushed Phototransistor Light or dark Reed Switch Magnetic field or no magnetic field
Digital Inputs can represent a variety of switch mechanisms, including a pushbutton switch, phototransistor, or reed switch. Digital Inputs Digital Inputs connect to I1-I8 on the interface.
Digital Inputs The Phototransistor (light sensor) has polarity. Notice the red side of the sensor. It plugs into the positive side of the Interface box.
Text The Text tool is used to display information on the program page.
Wait for Input Wait for Input responds to a digital signal change. Notice there are three holes on a switch. One wire always connects to the hole in the middle. The other wire goes in #3 for a normally open circuit, or #2 for a normally closed circuit.
Wait for Input Wait for Input is simpler and easier than using the Digital Input icon for some applications.
Counter Loop With the Counter Loop, you can execute a specific part of the program several times.
Counter Loop This Counter Loop allows a light to flash on for 2 seconds, then off for 2 seconds. The sequence will occur 10 times before the program ends.
Analog Branch With the Analog Branch, you can compare the value of an analog input with a fixed number. You can branch to the Yes (Y) or No (N) exit based upon the comparison. Set the condition and enter a comparison value.
This Analog Branch uses a photocell sensor to determine whether the reading (value of AX) is greater than 800. When it is, the light is turned off and the program ends. The Light function blocks display the analog value on your screen while the program is running. Analog Branch
