Can the Magelis XBTGT5330 access the timer preset value (Time data type) in the Modicon PLC directly?

No, you can not access the Time Data type directly from the Magelis. In Unity Pro, you need to use a conversion block to convert between the
Time and Integer or DINT data type. The blocks you will use are:
DINT_TO_TIME
INT_TO_TIME
TIME_TO_DINT
TIME_TO_INT

Keep in mind that the value of the integer or DINT is in milliseconds where the Time value could be in any format.
