Delay Processor

The “Delay Processor” is installed with the Dataristix Application. The processor accepts any input values and forwards the values after a configurable delay.

Add to Task

Add the “Delay Processor” to a task by dragging it from the “Build” panel onto the task’s “Task Builder” panel.
