With the RUN/STOP/RESET switch set to the RUN position of the CPU module, the operation status is changed to PAUSE
status from outside. The PAUSE status is a status in which operation of the CPU module is stopped by holding the ON/OFF
status of all output (Y).
Application of remote PAUSE
Remote PAUSE can be used to hold the output (Y) turned ON when the CPU module is in the RUN status, in the same ON
status, even when the CPU module is changed to STOP status.
