Hi there, 

I'm the first one! 

I'm kind of newbie programming with ladder and this drag and drop method. It is clear what a timer and counter is, but what is a coil and how should I use this 'thing', I think that you guys call it contact. 😎 

Thanks

Ash

Dear Vanessa,
The Coil is very simple, it's functionality is to change the value of a variable, if the coil recives current, the value will be 1, otherwise if the coil stop reciving current the value will be 0, this can be used to turn on/off other circuits.
Best regards.
