Hello Carsten,

VEE's "Timer" object (Device pulldown menu - Timer) outputs the
difference in seconds between the activation times of the top and
bottom data input pins.  Use a Timer to measure how much time passes
between two events, such as objects operating.

I think you are asking for VEE's "Delay" object
(Flow pulldown menu - Delay) which waits a specified period of
time before activating its Done data output terminal.
Use Delay to delay execution of a thread segment for a specified
number of seconds.

I attach a simple example VEE 5.01 program.



Hope this helps!
