transporter changes the direction

Hello,

 

I got a problem with Transporter. Transporter has to drop the pallets on KP3R, KP3L. for unloading I have used move strategy and Loadbay strategy.

i.e  {@.cont.move(KP3R) and @.loadbaybackwards := True) 

after it has KP3R and KP3L occupied, transporter has to bring the pallet from Zielpallet source and has to place it on KP3M, which is placed between KP3R and KP3L. Now worker has to transfer the boxes from KP3R and KP3L on to KP3M. after the work is done, Transporter has to take pallets again back from those 3 working stations and bring back to LIne61 (which is the exit conveyer). taking the pallets from Those 3 working stations can be done while Transporter is in forwards direction or backwards direction. for taking back, i have used pull strategy.

i.e KP3R.cont.move(@) and @.loadbaybackwards := false

after collecting the pallets, Transporter has to come back every time as the exit conveyor(line 61) is at the starting position of track.

Now the problem is Transporter is not coming backwards. after collecting the pallet from Those stations, it is moving forward. 

same thing happens with KP4M,KP4R,KP4L.

does the loadbay direction shows impact on Direction of Transporter ?

how can i solve this issue ?. Transporter has to come backwards always after taking the pallets from work station (KP3M,KP3R,KP3L,KP4L,KP4R,KP4M). 

 

Can anyone please help me with this ?

Thanks in advance.

loadbay direction is the direction of the loadbay only, the direction of the transporter you change with backwards:=true/false

Yes i have used @.backwards := True/false. strategy. for changing the direction of Transporter.

inspite of that, Transporter going in forward direction. then i am changing the loadbay direction. and Transporter going backward direction.

some issues:

 

- in your method sensor7_lastone: there is a @.stopped:= false missing

- your transporter has a sensorControl on the loadbay - this control also sets the direction of the transporter (in some cases in the wrong direction) - this you need to change
