Hello everyone,

I have a eaotn XN-322-16DIO-PC05 modul. And there is 2 counter inputs.
So when i recieve 10000 pulses form counter input it means that i have 1 lt water.
But my counter input is one byte. And it returns to 0 after 255.
Is there is any way to change my byte counter to ─▒nt or word?

Thank you.

Make a small FB that has an UINT. Add 256 to the UINT whenever you see counter < old counter. Set old counter = counter. This will catch the rollover. Then when UINT > 10000, you have 1 liter. You could even make a liter counter and roll over your UINT every 10000 counts. This way you can make a FB give you liters instead of worrying about counting.
