How can I read a sensor value, which is in IEEE 754 format, with floating point?

IEEE 754 is a technical standard for floating point.  If we are reading the value in 4 bytes format, we will need a conversion function block which is IEEE_TO_REAL.  This function block can be found in the  EA23_XS40MoellerFBAll library.
