Hello, I've been looking for a way to insert a network seperation like in the first image attached. I've seen that you can insert labels, but I prefer the specific network program seperation.

Hello,

To do this, the code sheet you are using must be in NOLD (Network-Oriented LaDder) format. You can choose this when opening a new Program for the first time, or when adding a new Code worksheet to an existing program.

Once you have the NOLD code worksheet open, you can create a new network by clicking on the icon in the toolbar, or right-clicking in the code worksheet. Both these options are shown below.

Thank you for your response, but it isn't possible for a LD worksheet since that network with ST are the only ones we are using.

I'm sorry, I don't understand.

Your first screen shot shows a NOLD worksheet.

Your second screen shot shows a LD worksheet.

But you are only using ST worksheets in your project?

=> It is only possible to get network separators in Network-oriented ladder (NOLD) code sheets, and not in LD or ST worksheets.

No I've converted a program from PCWorx and then it made (without me knowing) a NOLD code sheet, but when we make the code fresh in PLCnext we only use LD and ST code sheets, but since it's only possible in NOLD my question is answered so thank you for that. I would like to suggest or ask if this could be implented in the LD code sheets too since it's very nice to keep the overview of the programs you write.

OK, I think that PLCnext Engineer does what you want already.

If you create a NOLD  code sheet instead of a LD code sheet, you can use exactly the same blocks that you use in the LD worksheet, but you can arrange them in "Networks" - hence, "Network Oriented Ladder".

If you don't want the contact and coil that are automatically created in each new network, simply delete the contact and the coil, and the rung will disappear. But your function blocks will remain in that network.

Does this solve the problem?
