The ProductionParametersTypecontains several production parameters which are related to the complete extrusion line. Process parameters of the components (e.g. core extruder, winder) are located inside the models for these components.

Indication if the produced product has a good quality. Can be set by the machine or the operator. When it changes from true to false the line control shall create an alarm.

This Propertygives the general information on the complete extrusion line. The JobType(see 0) contains also a Property GoodProductwhich is specific for the running job. When two or more jobs are running in parallel, the product quality of each strand can be different. That means, if in one of the jobs GoodProductbecomes False, then the GoodProduct in ProductionParametersshall also be false.

Throughput of the extrusion line in mass per time (e.g. kg/h).

Weight of the produced product in mass per length or volume (e.g. g/m, kg/m³).

Production speed of the line in length per time (e.g. m/s).

Electrical energy of the extrusion line. The EnergyTypeis defined in OPC 40083.

Energy for the cooling of the whole extrusion line with fluid. The EnergyTypeis defined in OPC 40083.

Consumption of pressure air of the whole extrusion line (volume at standard conditions). The EnergyTypeis defined in OPC 40083.
