How can i change conveyor max content?

Hi, I want to change max content of conveyor.

I mean, Only one flow item can use conveyor, and other flow item wait the line.

I guess, if I use output or input control trigger I can do this.

But, I want to know . other way to solve this.

Thank you.

Here are 3 different ways you can control a conveyors max qty.

1) When using a queue before the conveyor you can set Triggers to add to or subtract from a Global Variable to keep track of what the qty on the conveyor.

2) When using decision points you can compare the qty (subnodes.length) of the conveyor

conveyor-qty-control-using-decision-points.fsm

3) You can also use Process Flow to look at a Global Variable to know the qty on a conveyor. (In this model the Decide and Delay is a longer form of just using a zone with a max content.)

Hi, in your "using process flow" example you have an EntryTransfer node on the conveyor. How did you do that without connecting Queue1 to the conveyor? The only way I can get an EntryTransfer node is if I connect an upstream queue to it, but that doesn't work well with my process flow. Any help would be great!

If you make a connection between the Queue and the conveyor it will create the EntryTransfer. You can then right click on the EntryTransfer and click on Remove Connections.
