Hello -

I am currently setting up a program to control a downlane conveyor motor and ran into the issue of operators leaving the conveyor on through their breaks/at the end of the shift.... I know, shocking :shifty:. Anyways, the essentials of the program are the following - ladder logic, start/stop PB station, a sensor that says when I've seen a box for x-amount of time I will turn off, when the eye is clear for x-amount of time I will turn back on. When trying to 'solve the problem' of the operators leaving them on, I figured this would give me a chance to use a RTC (real time counter) and program it so that at various times of the day I will send a single shot to verify the relay is CT is open. I've enabled the RTC on the Micro810, dropped a TOW but do not really understand how to set the TOW block up.

Hopefully that all makes sense.

Thanks, 

grubb

I thought that RTC = Real Time Clock.
