How to use a timer to silence an alarm


#1

I have a pretty simple application that I’m having trouble with. We have a material hopper with a 2 wire capaticance prox switch that turns off when the hopper is low on material. I have that set up through a relay to send a signal to an alarm when the material is low. Now what I want to do is set it up to where the operator can push a reset button to turn the alarm off for 10 minutes and if the material hasn’t filled back up after that time the alarm goes off again. I want it to repeat the cycle until the hopper is full again. Can I do this with a timer? On delay or off delay? Thanks
