Method for Worker to Pick Up Container At Line?


Can a line sensor method be written for when the sensor is triggered, the item is stopped on the line and a worker is called to pick it up and drop it off at a buffer? Or is a transfer station required between the line and and a workplace? I'm not sure how to put togther such method with a worker. Thanks!

Hello Vmorr,


yes you can, but it is not an easy task.

First, define a special worker class which will not be mediated by Broker/Workerpool

In the INIT method (of workerpool) you have to set the worker to be not mediated:

if worker.class=.MyWorkerclass then
		worker.automaticMediation := false

from now on, you can use the sensor control to call the worker, remeber, you need a workplace for the sensor position:



At the entrance control of the workplace, you set the destination for the part, move the part to the worker and move the worker to the destination workplace:


		part.destination := TargetStation

Hope this will help.
