Is there an opportunity to set a time limit for feeders? Thanks in advance You need to login in order to like this post: click here 22/10/2019 at 23:56 #18026 zestyModerator I don’t remember. A few options in the meantime. Option 1 Calculate the limit of parts and base your interval on that. Option 2 Use the CreateOnSignal option with a signal that pulses for the needed duration and interval. Note that the Warmup Feeder in eCat can be used for Option 1 as well and is mentioned in this tutorial https://academy.visualcomponents.com/lessons/machine-tending-using-different-libraries/ You need to login in order to like this post: click here 23/10/2019 at 01:29 #18030 ozanParticipant Or you can create another python code in feeder that counts time and after it finishes counting you can set a boolean property to true. And meanwhile your main python code can check for that boolean property to be false everytime it creates a new part. I used this to calculate shifts for the resources and it worked well for me.
