Timers w. offset time?

I’m really hoping that some of you guys can help me out. I’m struggling with setting up timers with offset time.

My set up is an incubator set up with one timer. While the incubator is running, I have a parallel process where I add different solvent to a plate on a heated shaker. After addition of solvent, I would like the timer on the shaker to run in the remaining time - the incubator is running - so they stop at the same time.

How is this possible to set up in Venus…?

Kind regards,

You know how long you set the first timer for. You can then read the elapsed time of timer1’s handle into a variable. Subtract the elapsed time from timer1 duration and set timer2 to that.
