I have CI502 on the remote.How do we use the integrated counter fast counters 0& 1? I used CNT_IO but does not seem like it's working. Any projects demos related to CI502 would be highly appreciated!

Hi Flavio,

Thanks for the link but i do not see any application programming related to CI502-PNIO.I wanted to know how the counter is being used on this module and how it is set up?

Hi Rob

during configuration, the remote CI502 - I/O part - is the same that other I/O device...

you need assign in parameter device that the I/O is used as one fast counter and then assign in the I/O mapping the desired value.

In the examples that I have indicated you need to search one "fast counter" application.

Hi Flavio,
I have done that part. CI502 has DI8 AND DI9 AS FAST COUNTERS.
Do we need to use CNT_IO function Block?

I used the regular bit for fast counters but when i input the signal greater than 50hz, it does not keep up with the signal. i am missing counts. so i am supposed to use some function blocks like we use for AC500 ECO ONB_IO_CNT?
