I am new to Schneider and EcoStruxure. I am now programming a Modicon M221 with the EcoStruxure Basic Software. It's a simple application that requires a timer, and I want to be able to change the PRESET value through an HMI. I was only able to find a TIMER block that allows an input to start the timer, a fixed PRESET value, and an output Q.
Is it possible to make the PRESET a variable and change that variable through the HMI?
Thank you in advance for your time.
You can reach your goal on the follow way.
You can write a variabel (as example %MW0 which is reachable via Modbus) in the instance of the Timer.
If you use %TM*.P you can overwrite the preseted Time value. (* = number of timer)
