# Time-Out Period

When the WDTCPS Configuration bits are set to the default value of ‘b11111, the PS bits set the time-out period from 1 ms to 256 seconds (nominal). If any value other than the default value is assigned to the WDTCPS Configuration bits, then the timer period will be based on the WDTCPS Configuration bits. After a Reset, the default time-out period is 2s.
