Can a time value be forced into the ET (Elapsed Time) of a Concept IEC timer?


No, If a value is forced into the variable attached to the ET output of the block; it will be updated with the timers internal value when the block is solved.

A variable time is created located to 400001 and it is given an Initial Value of 23 seconds.


The variable is attached to a TON block and downloaded to the controller with Initial Values.



When the controller is started and the block is set to solve the ET output will be updated with the internal time of the block.



Note: This applies to all / most function blocks either in Concept IEC or Unity Pro IEC.
