  1. Good Morning All Thank you for the response. At the moment I would just like to monitor the running time of the machine so that the maintenance team can replace any components that are due. If possible flag up a warning message on the screen to notify them. I would like to add other things to this system in the future but ill just take one step at a time wile I familiarize myself with it. I can use any input on the system as all are available at the moment. The plunger is just attached to a pump unit so there is no controller for this other than when the pump is
  2. Good Morning Aus Thank you for the information, the sample you did was great. I was planning on taking +24V input from our machine controller interface and connecting to I10 or I11 to initiate the counter on the samba system, is this possible. Many thanks in advance Cheers Neil
  3. Good morning/afternoon Flex you read my mind, the pump doesn't run all the time I do only require the counters to activate when I get a 24V input from my machine controller. I can write the code for every line as Aus made a good point Unitronics doesn't charge for each rung. Many thanks in advance.
  4. Good Morning Aus thank you for the advice, I will give this a try. I presume I will require a separate counter for every item that would be in my final programme this would be around 30. Many thanks in advance.
  5. Good Evening Flex Thank you for the swift reply, this makes sense I was looking for a hour counter in the timers function. I'm looking forward to learning this system and I'm sure you will be hearing from me in the not to distant future. have a great weekend. thanks
  6. Hello everyone I would like some help/advice on how to program my ladder logic for a project I am about to start. I purchased a Samba7" yesterday as this looked like the ideal model to start off with. I have created a maintenance screen for various items on our machine tool, I would like the system to notified me when it reaches certain hours, some items on the machine only require maintenance at 2000 hours. I need to take an input from the machine when the pump starts to run this would be via a 24V output from the machine. I then need this to start the timers running.
