Transporter with destination Table

Valued Contributor

Hello Everybody,

Can somebody please help me.

I wanted to direct a transporter by a table. I use the destinationListRow attribut, but the problem I have is that the transporter runs to it's position of pickup, picks up the part in a Singleproc and is rerouted onto the connecting tracks by a move statement, but although the automatic routing seems to function, no new route is asigned to the transporter. After reasignment, in the tooltip the correct destination is given, but a route is missing. Result is that the transporter starts running quite randomly through the model.

Any suggestion is welcome.

Thanks,

Marc

can you post your model?
To move the transporter for unloading to a singleproc is not a good idea. The automatic routing only works on a net of tracks (connected with connectors). For unloading you should use sensors on the track (e.g. with the sensor setting only if destination).

Hallo Steffen,

Thank you for you swift response. Unfortunately, for security reasons, I can not hand my Model out. The joke is that during the build, I tested each step, and it worked, in the combined structure it suddenly does no longer function. Weird!

According the help, the automatic routing should function also over SingleProcs. And it does also in my model, I think the mistake is to move the transporter after loading out of the singleproc with a move statement and hoping that automatic routing will work. I have to check this.

Greetings,

Marc

Hello Steffen,

Ahses over my head! The routing is/was working, I just forget some connections and the target station was not reachable. Lesson learned: always check whether the feature not only is active, but the response   is correct and not VOID or false.
