Help with Transfer station

Pioneer

Hello, 

i'm starting to develop a test model and i'm using a transfer station to load products onto transporters and another transfer station to unload them onto a drain. For that i have a sensor for the first TS to load and another for the second one to unload. 

The problem is, the second transporter only leaves the sensor when the first one arrives on it's target, but i want it to move right behind the first one. I don't want a gap between two transporters, i want (as long as there is a product ready for transportation) the transponter to leave right away, even if the previous one hasn't arrived yet.

the green LED ontop of the transferstation means, that the transferstation is working (loading). If you want to start earlier with the transporter, you need to change the time in the transferstation and in the PlaceBuffer. The same for unloading.
