  • Monitoring Machine Cycle Time DL06 - EA3

    Need to track and display machine cycle time using one input and DL06 / EA3. Thought this was going to be an easy simple task but to no success. Now in mental lock.

    X1 off starts count. during cycle X1 on. When X1 off again display time and start next count. If needed a second input can be used to start stop count. Time between 2 and 5 seconds.

    Assistance greatly appreciated Thanks,
    Craig

    May be able to use a one shot pulse when X1 drops out to copy the accumulated value of the timer to another memory location to be used for viewing.
    Put this above the timer in the ladder logic to prevent the timer from being able to reset before copying the value.
