Clock generator

This function block generates a clock signal with a period T' given by the value of the input cycle, expressed in seconds. The given period must be two times longer than the program block cycle. The clock generated by this function block will effectively have a period which is a multiple of the program block cycle time.

Signals

Name I/O Type(s) Function
Takt I FLOAT Cycle period in [s]
Q O BIT Pulse signal

Comment

The output Q will stay at a logical 1 for one program block cycle. This time is part of the complete period T' (see figure).
