This video gives basic information on Using the TMR "Timer" instruction in the Do-more Designer software. It presents information that is commonly missed by users. This WILL NOT be a complete tutorial for the instruction but rather a supplement to the help file and customer experience.
This is a multi-scan instruction, because it takes multiple scans to complete, it cannot be used in either Subroutines or Interrupt Service Routines. It can used in Programs and under special circumstances can it be used in Stages inside of a Program or in Tasks. See the help topic “Instruction Set Chart” for more information. This instruction has only one power rail that doubles for both Enable and Reset. If the rung is true the timer will be enabled. If it is false the timer will be reset. When the timer accumulator is greater or equal to the preset the timer done bit will turn on.
