We are trying to use automated valve so that when program starts, the valve will be opened for 2 minutes then closed for 5 minutes - repeating this cycle until program is stopped.
I found some example on-line for a code that control on/off time of LED using the flat sequence structure (attached). It controlls the boolean so that it's on and off for certain time. The problem is, how do I interface this with DAQ assistant for the valve? In other words, I need to make the continuous sequence of on-2 miniutes off-5 minutes as an input to DAQ assistant so that will communicate with the valve, but I am not sure how to do that.. I have attached the image of where I am at right now.I went through many Automated Control System Video but was bit confused.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you.

I certainly don't want to go through bunches of videos you linked to without knowing much about your query which is somewhat vague.

Which specific data acquisition? What kind of valve? What does the valve control? What triggers the program? What ends it? Details, details and even more details.
