Variable Numeric Max limit

Recommended Posts


Using Variable numeric to set a MI.

Is there a way to enter more than 32000 in the max keypad entry field?  This application counts press strokes to indicate end of run. typically the numbers are less than 10,000. We have a new product and need to set a preset count of 120,000.

An MI is a 16-bit signed integer. By definition it cannot hold a number outside the range of -32,768 - 32,767. An ML is a 32-bit signed integer which has a range of  -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647. If there is ANY possibility of a number outside the range of -32,768 - 32,767, then you must use an ML.
