English [Auto] All right, now I'm going to explain you light Lord converse like Lord conveyers I use for light Lord applications. All right, so let's see what are the different elements we have? And despite Lord Conveyers category, so we have formed a conveyor belt conveyor. So unlike to look at where this is used for later road applications along with the belt conveyor. We also have a six wheatbelt convert. This is used. This is a bigger one. OK, so based on your application, you can select this one. So I'll just take the forward as of now. Now this formula conversion, we also have three configuration, the three different planets, and this is similar to what we have in conversion. So this expanded very quickly once again. So one is a discrete. So when I click on play, uh, double click this tag and I have this horse here and with the screen I can move this convert in one direction like that. OK, so if I go to the another configuration discreetness minus. Now, I have these coverage running in two directions. One is this direction with the minus, one with a positive, one in another direction. All right. Now, the third one is Adelong. Now, in analog, you can control not using an analog bar. OK, let me show it from here. So we're slowly turning it on. This is in one direction and this is in another direction. All right. So three more different occasions similar to converge now in this belt converge. We have one more option. Belt, conveyor gate. OK, so this gate is usable in case you have a big conveyor like that, which you have six, but it converts like that and then takes me to away like that. And again, for me to converse like that, if you want to give a convenience to the operator to travel across the conveyers, you can connect without without disturbing the operation. You can connect the spoken word gate here. You can connect in such a way that it was fixed to both ends so I can go like that and that's going to go like that. So this will also be running the supposed to convey results of running and it also possible. So let's see what other different things we have here for. Well, this one is open. One is the gate. So if you see this one, this is an important input tag is it has a sensor inside. This is the output tag. So what does that sensor. Let's see that. So you see this belt conveyor is closed. So you'll find that this is a sensor which is not on the moment I opened this one. I can open this one from here. This is the only way you can see that the sensor is here is on, which indicates that the gate is open. If I release it, it will close the sensors off, sensors on if the gate is open. Otherwise, it's not to run this conveyor where I can do that from here. So this is running. All right. So this is running in one direction. So this is about looking. And you can also change this to positive and negative territory between the detection and you have animal control to move it in variable speed. So besides that, you have some eyeliners here. Eyeliners are used to align the boxes in one or another direction. OK, so I'm going to show you one application which will explain you the different all three elements and a very beautiful way. But before that, I want to explain one more thing here. Now, if you want to simulate the boxes, if you want to have your boxes on the conveyor, so instead of doing like taking a box and making the upside and running it here, this is the one way of doing that. But this is like a very complex way. So what you can do is instead of that, you can go to the. All items and go to the ATM, ATM. This is a great feature of this factory. I'll take the ATM and a line that the conveyor like that. OK, so now this ATM can be used to make the boxes. So, for example, I want to admit that's at the bottom. It's small, medium, large. So it will made all three boxes, small, medium and large and. You will also find the time of omitting the bodies of maximum time is a minimum time and how many balls you want to emit. You can put it here about 10 boxes. It will boxes for me. All right. So this is an amateur and then you have a revolver. OK, this remover is used to collect the boxes, so the boxes are made from here. This will collect the box. OK, so let's take an example and other elements. Just to add more so I can place it here in the correct time. Take new. A new five. Now I go to the tags, you'll find factory, our now these factory items are these one run, stop and pause so you can take a factory. I was running tag and you can take a metal and you can take a remover and then you have a belt conveyor. So what happened to the factory? The factory is running. This will be on. But this one I want my conveyor to be on. The conveyor will be on and I should activate my amateur revolver as well in order to avoid the box and to collect the box. So you have to activate all these three together. So when I go back to the factory, I click on play and let them connect. I'll let me just run it. This is running. Then you run this one now. Boxes are coming up. My dad, I should have it here. On a visit here. Like that, and then you have to hear it play, I didn't find the boxes that coming automatically and this was collectibles. So this is a way to simulate your application. If you have the system, you can have the boxes coming and again, do the testing and do the weight measurement, whatever you want to do. And then you can have it removed so that you don't have a clogging of boxes in your factory. So this is an amazing way, a very clean way to operate your operation using box a meter and a mover. Right. So let's see an application of all the light load conveyor elements, typically eyeliners, belt conversion and this belt conveyor gate. So I have a pre built application here, box close of motion on this one. This is the application and this one. I'll also open my correcto logic for this one, which is box filled with motion. So that's my logic. So what my logic says, I have an animator here and I have a box coming from here which will be traveling by this eyeliners, by this gate. I will come back to this position. So using eyeliners, I have a line, the boxes in the middle position of a conveyor. And I have traveled the boxes from one country to another again by. So let's see that I click on the play and you have conveyers running automatically. These countries are running automatically because my factory are running, but it is connected to all the bells conveyers like that. OK, now I have an amateur here with a start button. OK, so in Guinea tile. And in fact, you can also take a button, so this is my push button, so once I press this button, I can have the box coming out. So if I press this one box is coming out and by the eyeliners, it will be aligned like that. This is a gated who traveled from here to here. And again, by some eyeliners, it will be aligned to spot. Travel to the next conveyers, that's the function of a line if you're going to line your box motion. And the best feature of this gate is if I open this gate, my box will stop and see that box is not running the closest gate box inside. Again, I hope this makes sense. If I open this box, it will stop immediately because of the center and didn't start again. Similar indicators. Well, these are these two gates are connected in series in such a way. This is open operational stop and start again. So this was about how you can flexibly create your conveyers, likelihood converge with airliners and gate conversion within a matter. And I can also have simulation of another box is coming continuously and getting a line by itself. So the moment I press this button, I have another boss, I made it. So let me just ask boxes. And you're going to find these all boxes getting aligned automatically. This is like something a very creative way of running. I would say that you can see everything happening in front of you and you can have a real time effect of your boxes if there's any problem in your line. The box boxes made jammed and you can see the results. OK. And about the camera that I made you earlier, if you if I want to monitor this box, I can go to this camera, click this box for that camera and click the box. Now, my camera will follow this box all the way in the conveyor system. Wherever it is going, it will be monitored. And if I want to see the slow motion here, I click on this one and I can see the slow motion of my box and how it is being converted from here. It travels to another conveyer. Like that once this is like a greater way of living, and I it isn't that. So you can see how this is being aligned and eyeliners. You can you can put a line this by your choice as well. Here and then this is the Kate. And again, it will be. I again, it to go back to this position, I can install a over here, which will remove the boxes all at once. So this is about livlihood. Calvera application. I hope this makes sense. In the next video, we'll see some more elements which are related to light load conversion. All right. Do you have any question for your comment? Thank you.
