Hi,

 

I am new to the softeware. I face a problem that I want the carrier(container) wait on the line until TrasferStation give it a load and then move. 

 

Do I need to use any exist control logic or I need to code it myself? How do I know whether the load attached with a container?

 

Thanks !!!

Hello WendyWang,

 

when using the TransferStation, just go to tab Advanced Attributes. There you will find a flag called Always stop container. After checking this checkbox. the carrier will be stopped until they are completely loaded.

Hi GG,

 

I already clicked that, but if my source have a longer interval time, there are still many empty carriers go through. Do you have any advise on this?

You can do it the otherway. Check the model and see if this helps you.

Hi Wendy,

 

Try unchecking the "Exit control once" option in the control section of the object on which you are transfering the part along with "Always stop container" option in the transfer station.

Hi Varun,

 

Your advise works! Right now no empty carriers now. But the loadstation not loading the part at the point I defined. As the shown in the following figure, I set the LoadStation target at 3.048m of Lift_Z1621,which means I want the LoadStation to load parts to that position. But after unclick  "exit control once" and click "always stop container", the LoadStation load the part on Line2 not the target place I defined. Do you know any idea to solve this problem?

 

Thank you so much for your reply!

Hi Wendy,

 

The sensor position on "Lift_Z1621" is at 3.048m and length of the carrier is 6.096m i.e., the half of the carrier is still outside this("Lift_Z1621")" object. This might be the reason for the container not stopping at the defined location of the sensor positon.

 

Try changing the sensor position to 6.096m on the transfer station, that way entire carrier is on the "Lift_Z1621" before the loading takes place.
