  Hello guys,

 

     Do you know if we can set a angle parameter in a sensor positioned in a conveyor (Line object)?

 

     When we are commissioning a equipment it makes sense.

 

Thanks,

Renato Lima

Hello,
As I know ! I'm not sure if you can set an angle in your sensor.

No way - today! Angular sensors would require to evaluate length, width and position of the MU at the same time. Plant Simulation for performance reasons only considers length and position.

 

This task is usually required, when you need a gap detection for succeeding MUs. In case you want to consider such a situation you'll have to place two sensors and to use their combined signal. To avoid missing part B in the picture below you will need an additional boolean, that tells you whether a part has passed S1 but not yet reached S2.
