8 ProductionParameters ToC Previous Next

The ProductionParametersType contains 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.

8.1.1 GoodProduct ToC

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 Property gives the general information on the complete extrusion line. The JobType (see 0) contains also a Property GoodProduct which 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 GoodProduct becomes False, then the GoodProduct in ProductionParameters shall also be false.

8.1.2 Throughput ToC

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

8.1.3 ProductWeight ToC

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

8.1.4 LineSpeed ToC

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

8.1.5 ElectricalEnergy ToC

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

8.1.6 FluidEnergy ToC

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

8.1.7 PressureAir ToC

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