Loop Timer (Ticks) (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: September 11, 2017

Waits a number of clock cycles equal to the value of tick count between loop iterations. The length of a clock cycle is determined by the clock rate you configure for the clock that drives the code within the loop.

This node does not wait the first time it executes.


tick count

Number of clock cycles to wait between loop iterations.


tick timer value

Value of the internal counter of the node when the loop iteration begins execution. The counter rolls over when the counter reaches the maximum of the Counter size that you configure for this node on the Item tab.

Missed Execution Behavior

If the loop takes longer to execute than the interval that you specify, the node outputs the counter value immediately and establishes a new reference time stamp for subsequent calls.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: All devices

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
