Skip contact Bounce

Unread postby Ingo » Tue Jun 23, 2015 8:12 pm

Hello from Germany!

First of all thanks for this Great Software!
I was looking for such a Kind of Software for Hours on the net and happy to find it!

I need this for a hobby project: getting the time for children car race.
But there is one issue I hope somebody can help me with:

I'm using a IR sensor with a mechanical relais.
When the kids pass the IR line, then sometimes the contact is is there more then once and the time just stops after it starts.
This means I need to increase the skip contact bounce.... But the time I can set up in the program is not long enough.
I found the info in the forum to change the ini.... But anyway I need to open this window to enable the external control....

Can sombebody help me here!
I would need a bounce time of about 1-2 seconds...

Thank you Guys!!!

BR from Germany

Well, I need this for a "race" with a wheelbarrow.

When I place the IR sensor in about 15cm height, then with this wheelbarrow and the person behind it pass the IR sensor "several times"...
This is why I wanted to extend this time to make sure there is no wrong measuremt or start and stop when not wanted.
1or2 seconds should be fine...

I hope this makes it clearer....

Can you define exaclty in which sequence I have to set up the ini file so that I can modify this time and how the program will take it?
In another post I was asking for this sequence, but it is still unclear to me:
When I change the External setting to my wishes and then close the whole program, then change the ini file and then start the program again: Will the external settings then still be correct?
Cause when I open it it is back to none....

Thanks for your patience with my :-)
and for your support and help!

Hello and congratulation for such a great (and cheap!) s/ware. I need the same for some dog activity where the dog activates the sensor with his head or front feet and reactivates it with his tail or rear feet. About 2 secs (why not be able to make as the user wishes?) would be great.

Thank you very much for your response.
I've been noticed on this solution (after search in the forum) but as all this is a little bit complicated for an non computerfreak person I would prefer a more easy to approach setting. Plus, been able to set a "neutral period" is helpful in general when IR switches are used as it is common to have accidentally activated switches before the expected activation.
If this modification/update is really a trouble, we can live with what is offered, the software is great anyway.
