Panel builder help needed

Hi guys
I have a question to see if it is possible to display a cycle timer slide display on a panel view screen ?

I have a machine that we would like to capture the time it takes for a Press to pre press a product then press the product to a set time (which is the cycle time)
And display this on a panel view screen ?
Our thoughts is to have a slide gauge displaying seconds of a cycle
Do you think this can be done thanks Stu

Does your machine already have a HMI installed on a control panel.

The short answer is yes, you can. An quite easily.

I notice you reset the RTO when the cycle has completed.

Personally I would use 2 RTO's.

On the first cycle move the .acc into a store area. Use this to be viewed on screen. Then you can reset that RTO.

Use the second RTO to start timing as soon as the first stops so you have no latency in timing. Move that into a storage area once complete.

Rinse and repeat.
