Scan Base for Modules

An alternative to manually configuring IO Modules into the Base in the CODESYS IDE, there is an option that allows a user to scan the Base for IO Modules present and then populate these into the Base Device in the Project Tree.


The image below shows a system with IO Modules plugged into the Bases slots, but not yet populated in the Base device in the project tree as below:
