I/O register overview

The IOR is a generic element which allows to write/read from a given hardware register a value. This value type may be one of: int, float, bool but the hardware usually expects a fixed type for a given register.

In contrary to the writing of the motor’s position attribute the writing of the IOR’s value attribute is an instant operation.

The IOR has a very wide range of applications, for example it can serve to control the PLC registers.
