Perhaps it has something to do with the program scan time?

1 ms is challenging.

More information would be required.

WHICH PLC?  Different models have different cycle times, and they should document the accuracy of the timer function in the manuals.

WHAT IS THE CYCLE TIME SET TO?  Many PLCs have a setting for the cycle time.  Maybe it's set to 10ms and so you can't be more accurate than that.

Don't know that model, I only know the older ones, haven't touched Modicon in a decade.  

Someone more familiar with the current software will have to answer, sorry.

But I do see in the manual that there are task settings to be made to determine which programs run and how often.  That is what I was referring to.
