ConveyorExit

Removes the incoming material items from a conveyor network and sends them further via the output port as regular agents.

The succeeding process can be simulated using the Process Modeling Library blocks: Delay, Queue, etc. These blocks can define the process on a higher abstraction level and then you can place the agents in (another) conveyor network using the ConveyorEnter or Convey blocks of the Material Handling Library.

Agents do not spend any time inside this block.

Parameters

Exiting agents
Here you can choose what happens to the material item's animation when the material item leaves the ConveyorExit block. There are two alternative options:
stay where they are — When the agent leaves the ConveyorExit block, its animation resides at its current place
are removed from space — When the agent leaves the ConveyorExit block, its animation is removed from presentation
Value type: boolean
Default value: stay where they are (false)
Local variable: T agent — the current material item

Actions

On exit
Here you can type Java code that will be executed when the agent leaves the block.
Local variable: T agent — the current agent

Ports

in
The input port.
out
The output port.
