Re: 回應: A State Chart Design Pattern for PackML Machine Control

The errors seen in loading the project have been fixed - this was due to some un-used VI's referenced in the project.

 

Version 4.1 of the code has been uploaded:

Re: PackML Machine Control Reference Application using the LabVIEW State Chart Module

The OMAC Packaging Machine Language V3.0 Mode & States Definition Document contains a description of the state machine you define in your reference application.

 

It states in Table 1 that the Resetting state establishes the initial state of the machine. Your controller starts in the Idle wait state and could result in a machine operating before it is safe to do so.

 

Is there something in the full specification that contradicts this interpretation?

Re: PackML Machine Control Reference Application using the LabVIEW State Chart Module

I agree that the starting state should be "Resetting" - ensuring that the machine is in a stafe state on startup.

 

A simple modification of the statechart corrects this (see red circle) - this will make the initial state the Resetting state vs the Idle state:

Thank-you for pointing out this oversight

 

I will try to include this in the next version of the code

PackML Machine Control Reference Application using the LabVIEW State Chart Module - files missing

There seems to be no files in the compressed "packml_v5_1.zip " file. Can someone please fix this.

 

Thanks

Hey,

 

I just tried the download and it worked for me.  Do you have a firewall or something that might strip .zip files?
