TAC Menta - DELAY with operator input in minutes

Hello,

 

we have a scenario where an operator should be able to enter a time delay in minutes.

 

We tried to simulate it with a calculated value (minutes times 60) in the delayon field.

Sadly the DELAY block doesn't accept such an external value,

 

Has anyone a smiliar scenario and solved it in an elegant way?

 

Looking forward to your Responses.

 

PS: Please be kindly, this is my first post and english is not my first language.

You are correct, the DELAY block must have the settings in seconds.

 

So, i bit of a question what you want?

 

Is it just a delay on? Or delay off? or both?

It is not that difficult to make a timer in other block, there you can re-calculate from minutes to seconds, if you run the application once a second.
