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.
