How do I extract a bit of a word in Vijeo Designer with the EIP Driver?

Published date: 14 December 2019

Issue:
Looking for a way to read a bit from a word out of an Allen Bradley PLC using the Ethernet IP driver in Vijeo Designer.

Environment:
Vijeo Designer 

Resolution:
The Ethernet IP Native driver is tag based.

When linking the tags to the L5K file, the address will be something like this: MyArray[0] for an array variable. To read bit 0 of the first element of the array, you can create a new external bool and enter this address syntax ARRAY[0].0 
It is important to note that is it case sensitive.
