Schematic: Function-Block Wires and Connectors

Function-Blocks: Data-Type and Data-Channels

Each Function-Block output-connector carries a Data-Type

Each Data-Type has 3 Data-Channels

For example:

the Data-Type from a Motion FB is Motion
the Data-Channels are: Position, Velocity and Acceleration [Linear or Angular]
