Hi everybody!

I need to know how can i associate to a SingleProc of my model a timer. When a SingleProc finishes to work I want to put the timer on (30 seconds). I want the SingleProc to remain in standby for a lack of time at least equal to the timer.  Can you help me?

the energy state standBy is connected with the station state paused, so you can use the method
<station>.startPause(duration) to pause the station for a while. The energy state will change automatically to standby. You need "only" to identify the finish of the work...

Perfect, thanks! and is it possible to put the machine in pause and at the finish of the pause period they stay in the standby state and they don't change automatically their  energy state in the operational state? because i want them to stay in the standby state for a certain period and i want that at the and of this period they could change their state but they don't do it automatically.

Click in the tab Energy on "State Transition". Here you set the energy state after end of the pause, try start and End --> "Standby"
