When you're using S7 or SIMATIC counters in your PLC program, one of the things that might be limiting in some projects is that these counters can only count up to 999 and not beyond that. That means, for instance, when you're using an S7 counter to count the number of the products passing on a conveyor belt, when the counter counts up to 999, it stops there and the counters accumulated value will not increment any further when it receives new input signals in the software. Now the question is what if you needed the counter to count a larger amount? Meaning more than 999. Well, in that scenario just like what you learned for extending the time for S7 timers, you can implement some programming tricks and techniques here as well to extend the amount that an S7 counter is able to count. So let's see how you can do that.
