We have covered most of the ways that the eDART can get its Machine Sequence information. The reason for getting the sequence right is so that the eDART will calculate accurate summary values. One of the most important values calculated is Effective Viscosity during fill. This is generally a variable over which you have no control but is a huge factor in analyzing problems. Most of the other summary values record how the machine is working. A few in-cavity variables (e.g. cavity fill time) relate to the start of fill sequence.
I have tried to represent the more important summary values computed in the graph below.
Here is the same information from the graph but shown in a list (plus a few more). These are the more important summary values that depend on Machine Sequence signals (the sequence signals computed by the sequencer, not those directly input from the machine).
Machine Sequence / Injection Forward
Machine Sequence / Fill
Machine Sequence / Pack
Machine Sequence / Hold
Machine Sequence / Screw Run
Machine Sequence / Mold Clamped
