On some occasions, you may need to continue timing a process even after the enable input to the timer turns false. As you may know, once the timer enable input transitions from false to true again, the timer resets and begins timing from zero. In this lesson, we will show you how you can change the timer timing value based on whether or not the timer completed its original timing function.
Let’s assume that you need the timer to time for 20 seconds in order to complete a defined step in your program however, the timer input was interrupted prior to completion and the step only timed for 9 seconds. We show you how to manipulate the timer parameter in order to complete the full 20 seconds without starting from the beginning of the timing process.
