Timer Question

Postby Dave Burtchell » Mon, Feb 02 2015, 10:12PM

The timer used to pop up at the end of the program. Now it asks for a start button push before it pops up. Does the timer keep running until the start button is pushed or does it stop when it reaches that line of code with "timer" in it?
We're trying to do an efficiency study, so we'd like to know how accurate our numbers are.
Also, when I've looked at the Timer Log on a couple of occasions, the "cycle time" is the same as the line above it which, I believe, is "end time". I know the one sheet didn't take over 14 hours to cut:)
Anyone have experience with the timer?
