Long Period Timer


Recommended Posts

We have a circulating pipe, which is filled with liquid and circulates freely.But there's a different liquid, just as it's been labeled with isotopes.

Each time this different liquid is detected, it means a cycle.

As shown in the figure, it's a cycle of 13 days.

We use the rising edge of the clock once a day to trigger a rising edge sensor and keep a 1s' delay and let a lattice of liquid pass through the liquid valve.

Finally, a liquid element sensor is used for output.A rising edge sensor and a delay can also be used to output a controlled period of time.It's exactly the same as controlling the automation of liquid valves.

 

 

This is one of the interesting applications. I will use 13-cycle timers on automated farms. I will check food storage every 13 cycles. If the storage is too low, I will open the farm or keep it closed.

Very nice design! Clean and minimalist. I have thought about using a timer and liquid in some way for that, but never got around to it.

This also gives you that you can trigger one thing on one day and another thing on a defined number of days before or after.

Yes, you can do any programming you want, or even add more kinds of liquids.
