  1. Need Help - Change sensor to accurately detect box jams

    Are the roller conveyors powered? If so, you can flip the rubber bands around so the rollers role backwards, creating a mini gap. Then mount your sensor right at that gap.   We have used vision before to detect different box sizes and thus know if the box doesn't change in a certain period of time.   We have also used a spring loaded brush to create a gap.    I think you need to figure out a way to create a gap, or use multiple sensors. Saying if a box passed this sensor, but the next sensor downstream isn't on, then there is a jam.

    I just had this happen to me last week when I went from FT version 8.2, back to 8.1, and then to version 9. This was from Rockwell support and it worked for me.

    I would suggest you guys start a new topic for your errors. Otherwise they get lost inside of someone else's topic.

    Use produced and consumed tags. Easiest way in my opinion. Starts on page 117.
