On an NJ-series Controller, I used a variable with a TIME data type to register the timer set value for a TON instruction and other timer instructions. I want to change the set value from an NS-series Programmable Terminal, but it does not support variables with a TIME data type. How should I set the timer?


You cannot change a variable with a TIME data type directly from an NS-series Programmable Terminal. Instead, register a variable with a LINT data type in the NJ-series Controller. To use this variable for the set value of a timer, convert the LINT data type to a TIME data type with the SecToTime instruction. Now you can change the value of the variable with the LINT data type from the NS-series Programmable Terminal.
