I'd like to ask you a question because in order to optmize one of my programs, I need to create new variables and duplicate a program almost identically. However, if I duplicate it, I'll run out of timers, so I wanted to know if it's possible to have timer extensions or not.

Thank you very much

You can't add to the number of timers available but you can change the way you count time.  What is the model of the PLC you have?

Depending on the application, I often roll my own timers by incrementing an MI with a time pulse and using compare and reset numeric blocks on them.  It takes up more program space, but you get a lot more control over what you do with the "timer" value.
