In my application I have several timers for various things that I have the timers currently hard coded with set times.  I would like to have a screen that I could view these timers and there current setting and then edit the time via this page so it would need to preset that timer.  I'm not sure where even to begin.  I'm thinking a data table but not sure how to display this.

 

 

Thanks

Paul

Insert the Timer Variable onto your HMI screen, select Preset, and check Keypad Entry. You can also select the format you want displayed, a description that shows on the keyboard popup, and other niceties. This will allow you to change the timer preset from your HMI screen.

Hey, One more thing it seems that you can change these just fine but if you shut the unit off and back on they reset to the original value.  Is there away to save the changes to these timers so that even if power is cycled the last entered value remains?

Make sure the box circled in red is NOT checked when you create your timer.

 Is it the same for numeric number also . For example if I don't "check" the box  on a numeric variable and I put the values from keyboard on the HMI screen , will the values be saved after I restart my PLC.

Any check box for power-up write power-up value to destination, either Timer or MI, etc.

When check-box not checked, then last value before power-off is stored (battery backup memory).
