MODICON M221 EcoStruxure TIMER

Hello everyone, 


I am new to Schneider and EcoStruxure. I am now programming a Modicon M221 with the EcoStruxure Basic Software. It's a simple application that requires a timer, and I want to be able to change the PRESET value through an HMI. I was only able to find a TIMER block that allows an input to start the timer, a fixed PRESET value, and an output Q. 
Is it possible to make the PRESET a variable and change that variable through the HMI?


Thank you in advance for your time.

You can reach your goal on the follow way.

You can write a variabel (as example %MW0 which is reachable via Modbus) in the instance of the Timer.

If you use %TM*.P you can overwrite the preseted Time value. (* = number of timer)




best regards
