"Wait delay" instruction
Allow a period of time to elapse before the part-program continues to run.
Figure 1: Window for programming a waiting delay
The time parameter is given in milliseconds[ms], the default value when the instruction is inserted in the part-program is 100[ms].
You can give a fixed (constant) time setpoint or give it using a user variable. The "" button next to the time parameter allows you to choose a variable as a time setpoint.
If the time parameter comes from a user variable, this one must be of type TIME.
In figure 1, the waiting time is a constant, unlike figure 2, or the waiting time comes from a user variable.
