Goals and Symptoms
This resolution is an example for a call to a subroutine. It provides an overview for calling a secondary POU not scheduled in the Task by a main POU.
Causes and Fixes
SoMachine is a software package which includes Vijeo Designer and CoDeSys. It is used to develop applications for the XBTGC (PLC and HMI Combo) or the M238 (PLC only)
In order to be executed, POU (Program Organization Unit) must be scheduled in the Task Configuration. Or a main POU already scheduled in the Task Configuration can call to a secondary POU that is not schedule in the Task Configuration list.

7) Running the project
Call_SecondaryPOU = False, Secondary Pou not being executed.
