Simple counter with reset and display output.
« on: October 11, 2023, 09:08:57 AM »
Need help making a program that will count with a photo eye. It needs to output the feet measured to a display and have a reset button. Anyone care to help? Tried a couple things but couldn't get it to work yet.

How do you count distance with a photo eye?  Photo eye typically is triggered when a part comes into front of it and block the light path into the photo eye (either transmissive or reflective). 

Once you get the reading to output the measured data to a display is very easy, especially with a PLC that has built-in display such as the Wx100 or FMD or FX PLC with a LCD420 display.
