rounding a value to nearest 10

4 posts in this topic

Hi

I have flow meters and have them counting up to a value and stopping a pump.

 

it all works but the display on the hmi counts up in decimal places because of the scale factor of the flow meters.

To scale them because of inacuracy I basically multiply what I want to count to by 1000 and i basically add for every pulse of the flow meters a value between 1500 and 500 to count to scale the flow meters then compair the two to stop the pump if the count is equal to or greater than the dialed in amount.

Is there an easy way to round this value to the nearest bigest 10's value?

I'm guessing convert to a floating point use the FIXL instruction?

is there an easy way im missing as I could not seem to find a rounding instruction?

What screen are you using?

If it is only for display, the NS screens will round the value automatically to the number of digits shown. FYI... the NS screens will also scale for you.

I'm using a mixture of NB and NS screens currently and possibly in the future ignition scada.

That is one option I guess but it is screen dependant and would be nice to do it in the plc.
