In situations where the workbench terminal templates provided are not suitable for the manufacturing process, custom terminals can be created. Depending on the requirements, it may be quicker and easier to copy an existing terminal, than building a new workbench terminal from scratch. This guide covers both scenarios. Before creating a custom workbench terminal, you should have read the sections:
Let’s start by learning how we can build a custom terminal by copying an existing terminal template first. When a terminal is copied, all settings relating to the source terminal are copied to the new terminal. It is important to note that the copy process does not create a separate copy of the on-screen elements. Therefore, both terminals will be referencing the same on-screen elements. In cases where a terminal needs to be associated to an existing on-screen element but you want to apply different on-screen element properties, the existing on-screen element should be copied and the properties edited or created from scratch.
To copy a terminal:
To successfully create custom on-screen elements, you must have a good understanding of the different functions included in LYNQ. Functions ultimately determine how the user interacts with the workbench. Refer to the ‘Functions’ section before starting this section.
It’s possible to create custom on screen elements by:
Both scenarios will be covered in this guide.
Let’s assume you have two terminals configured. Work Centre A and Work Centre B and both terminals are using the material issue on-screen element. You decide that in Work Centre B you want to disable the ‘allow over issue setting’ but in Work Centre A the ‘allow over issue setting’ is enabled.
This can be achieved by:
