DP820 - Required as normal counter
Please can you assist me with the setup and configuration of my DP820 card o Freelance 2016 SP1.
Application: I am using it for a simple bag count application. When a bag drops the Card should count the bag. This happens every 10/15 seconds should it count a bag.
Attached is my configuration - InputA Up and InputB down. The issue I am facing is when my system does a bag count and when the bag count input is ON, the DP card keeps counting UP. I require only to count 1 Pulse when the Bag count Input is on, not increment up.
Assistance will be highly appreciated.

PrmText = 45 ; Gated count mode DP820 Text(0) = "Gated count inactivated " Text(1) = "HW gate. DI. level control " Text(2) = "HW gate. DI. pos. edge control "
In your settings , the trigger is disabled. Try to select the option : Text(2) = "HW gate. DI. pos. edge control "
With this setting, the DP820 detects the change from 0 to 1 on input A.
After changing this parameter on Freelance CBF, assure that changes are loaded - in CBF project tree the connected controller must be green and have no load arrow.
Finally reset the S800 by untighten the xxxx or by poweroff ( this is not mandatory required, but if unsure I always do a reset)
