Timers
« on: January 11, 2019, 10:26:02 AM »
I have been programming with RSLogix for years but new to Directsoft.  When using a timer,  how do you use a bit tied to that timer for an enable bit or a done bit or a timing timer bit?

Enable - parallel the timer with a C bit coil

Timing - parallel the timer with an XIO of the timer Done bit to a C bit coil

An output is a PLC's way of getting its inputs to change.
