I have a flowmeter logging to a SD Card in my FC6A. One record for total volume per day happening at midnight using a WEEK command
The operator wants to be able to change the time in which resets the pulse counter.
I'm sure I'm over thinking this but stuck I am.

Do you have a project started and can't get it to work or stuck just getting started? If you have a project already you can share it and we can take a look and offer suggestions.

Sounds like your timer will just reset the flow pulse counter once a week but you'll probably want to move that value to another register to track long term and only reset the weeks total.

Can you explain what you are trying to do in a little more detail?

Thanks Shane
I haven't used a IDEC a lot as I come from Oil & Gas, but I'm now adding the FC6A to an amount of flow meters.
They produce both a pulse and analog signal. (The modbus option wasn't chosen when they were first installed)
Thinking the WEEK command is what I am using now, but would like to make it selectable as some of the parties have a different "contract hour". I have it functional now and will have to add some points for the operators but will hope to get it up here later this weekend. I also have to get a easy webpage built in it for my first time with this option.
I have to tinker getting a cell signal for the modem as most of these site a quite remote.
