In this video we will review how the timers work and demonstrate how to set up a "delayed on" timer and a "flashing" timer.
The delayed on timer is used if you need the input trigger to be active for several seconds before you flag a fault. This is useful to prevent false triggers from occurring for example if you have pressure spikes or when measuring fuel level that rolls around as the equipment is moving or to provide a startup delay for things that normally take a few seconds to come up to normal pressures when the equipment first comes on line.
The flashing timer can be used to provide a on/off pulse output to drive things like warning lamps and sirens or any other load that needs to be pulsed on/off at a periodic rate..
The timer has many more operating modes that are depicted by a graph that changes in response to the mode selected in ACE making it easy to see how the output will respond to a input trigger.
