Tip of the Day 65: The “Race” to sort on Cycle Time

The previous tips develop the idea of the “race condition” between the time the eDART puts out the sorting signal and the time the automation picks it up. To prevent a race there are ways to force the alarms to be computed early by setting a sorter integration limit...

Tip of the Day 64: Time to Compute Alarms

Following on from tip #63 (When is the Robot Listening?)…Concept #3: It takes a little time for the eDART to compute integralsWhen the time in the cycle reaches the “Integration Limit” the eDART must do its math to compute the integrals. The computer is fast but not...

Tip of the Day 63: When does your Robot Listen?

Following on from tip #62 (Level v.s. Edge Actuated)…Concept #2: When is the Robot Listening?For both types of automation the sorting signal must be ready when the equipment needs it. For example a flipper chute must have the signal at its set level (“Good” or not)...
