Is it possible to get Plant Sim to count the number of different entities on a single conveyor?

I have a table where I've defined several different entities with different names and different attribute names.

They come from sources that generate the entities based on this table. At one point in my model they all converge to one conveyor and I would like to know how many of each of the different entities enter/exit the conveyor.

 

Thanks!

I would create a sensor located at the exit of the conveyor and add a control method. The method should have as many "if" as entities available.

 

Can you send your model to program the method for you?
