Can anybody give me an explanation of how monitor statements work and maybe an example of how they have used them? PalletTool uses them alot and I would like to understand them before I monitor them.

If you have access to a manual, look up condition monitor.

A monitor is a program that waits for a condition to happen, then calls an action program. For example,

ConditionProgram:
when DI[1] = on, call   ActionProgram

ActionProgram:
UALM[1]
DO[3]=on
Monitor ConditionProgram

Then in your main program you can use the monitor statement to start a program monitor.

The monitor runs in the background and just contains "when" statements. The action program is called when that event happens. Action programs cannot contain motion (there is a special workaround). 

There are 2 types, system monitor and program monitor.

In my opinion BGlogic is the better method for event based programming.
