How to program Function I timer in Ladder logic for Zelio smart relay?

Resolution:
The Ladder logic program in Zelio smart relay offers powerful timer function. There are 3 types of blocks for timer function--- contact, command coil and reset coil. The command and reset coil are the ‘logic block’ where you can define what timing logic you need the timer to execute. The contact for the timer are the actual output or actuator of the timing logic.
For the timers in Ladder Logic, it offers 11 different timing function, this FAQ is the tutorial about how the Timer function ‘Function I: Flasher unit, press to start/ stop’ works. The on time was set to 2 seconds and off time was set to 1 second.
A simple program was built including a N.O. contact ‘I1’ that is controlling the command coil of the timer, a N.O. contact “I2” that is controlling the reset coil of the timer, output Q1 is controlled by I1 and I2. After I1 is closed, output Q1 will close for 2 seconds and then open up for 1 second and the on and off process will be repeated. I2 needs to be closed to stop the process.
A simulation was conducted to show how the program works
