Delay a pulse (beginner question)
« am: November 28, 2022, 16:05:21 Nachmittag »
Hello,
I'm a beginner and I was programming the following.
When M02 delivers a continuous signal, I want this to be transformed into a pulse to M03, but 5 seconds after that the signal came in. I got it working now with attached timers. But there must be an easier solution with only one timer? (or not?)
Regards Chris

can you describe the process dictating the timer triggers in more depth?

It likely will require 2 timers, however, depending on the control requirements, might be written differently.

Rule #1 for any type of coding is; IF IT WORKS, DON"T FIX IT; but there are multiple methods for skinning this goat.

Thanks for your answer.
M02 delivers a pulse (and sometimes a continuous signal), whatever it does I want this to be transformed to a pulse to M03 but 5 seconds after the pulse came in.
So what I have done now is:
M02 delivers signal, the first timer is a pulse timer. It will send out a 6 seconds pulse. Then timer 2 is a delayed timer. It will start sending after 5 seconds, so because timer 1 sends out for 6 seconds, timer 2 will send out a 1 second pulse after 5 seconds. I hope I explained it well.
I was hoping I could do this with one timer, so it is easier to change. On the other hand you are right, it works.

What is the trigger to end the pulse created by timer 1?

I might suggest that M2 triggers the timer which is your initial delay, and if the pulse generated in your M3 is still required, then trigger your 6 second pulse timer following your initial delay. Use an on-delay timer as your initial delay, and a flashing timer as your pulse.


So m2 starts timer 1 which is set to your 5 second delay, and then activates timer 2, which flashed your 6 second pulse, generating your m3.

I apologize for the delyed reply. I was away from my desk.
