Controlling line flow with sensors

[ Edited ]

Hello, i'm having problems trying to simulating this case: I'm using a conveyor with sensors to simulate operations in a line, when the sensor detect de MU it will stop certain time, the sensor will get the time from a table file; Currently im using line.stopped in the method but the problem is that when the sensor detect de MU all the line stop but i want to stop only that MU not all the line.

I'm attaching the simulation.

 

Thanks

 

Regards

Re: Controlling line flow with sensors

is this the right file?

A line you can only stop completely, so you need to split the line into segments and stop the segment.
Another way is to model the parts as transporter, the line as track. Then you can stop the parts (as transporter).

@.stopped:=true --will stop the MU on line or track, nevertheless what kind it is (Entity, Container, Transporter)

wait MyTime

@.stopped:=false --will release the MU
