Converter Capacity

Hello everyone, 

What is the simplest way to impose a capacity of the Converter. 

I'm trying to handle it thanks to an entrance method and the EntranceLocked (of the converter), in order to have only one MUs on the Converter at a time. This works well but sometimes I notice two MUs on the same converter, as you can see on the picture below.

 

Thank you very much.

Hello

 

Have you tried the capacity field of the object? By default it will be -1 which is as many as will fit but if you change it to 1 then only 1 mu should be allowed on at a time.

Hello James,

Thank you for your comment.
I can't see any Capacity Field in the Converter object, do you ?
I'm using 12.0.5 version.
Thanks

Have just checked the 2 versions that I have got (12.1.1 and 12.2.1) and both of them have got the capacity field on the main tab of the dialog that opens for the converter.

In the version I have the converter main tab looks like this :

I'll try to set up 12.1 version and I'll keep you in touch. Thank you James !

it is missing in the version 12.0..., but you can set it directly in the attributes and method window (F8), double click on the line capacity and set the value
