Action

Delay program execution for a short time.

 

 

Syntax

DELAY

 

 

Remarks

Use DELAY to wait for a short time.

The delay time is ca. 1000 microseconds.

 

noticeInterrupts that occur frequently and/or take a long time to process, will let the delay last longer.

When you need a very accurate delay, you need to use a timer.
