I am new to programing and a mechanical engineer by background so please don't think to badly of my for not knowing the answer already. Can someone please help me understand how the one shot instruction works? Example: I have a rung with a normally open input as the first instruction. At the end of the rung I have a timer. I want to make the input condition true and hold it true for several cycles of the timer. So when the input goes true for the first time, the counter starts. When the counter finishes another action happens in a later rung. The counter is then reset without ever resetting the orginal input condition (has remained true since the first activation). If I have a one shot between the input and the timer, if the timer is reset will the timer start timing again (without having reset the input, meaning the input and the one shot are still activated). Or do I need to come up with some other plan? Please help.
