Brief Description

This project shows how to sort material based on size and user defined criteria.

  • Feed is crushed, dried and screened prior to the optical sorting
  • Optical sorting criteria is written using Model Procedures.

Project configuration

Setting up Feed
  • Feed Data is entered using the TagList Model (ScenarioOptions). Four Feed Scenarios are available, user can select which scenario to use via the General controller (Overall_Control, Feed Tab)
Setting up and Enabling Size Distribution Data
To Enable the Model Procedure
  • Right click on Optical_Sorter models (Modelled as Tie-1 process unit), On the Info Tab, select Procedures
  • MP tab will be created, allowing the addition of a MP file.
  • MP file is evaluated within the process unit, and can only fetch values local to the current Tie model. Therefore when fetch values, unit Tag name is not used.
  • Use the Get() function to retrieve values from SysCAD
  • Use the Set() function to set values into SysCAD
For help on the syntax of the model procedure file, please see Model Procedure (MP).

Included Excel Report

  • PlantFeed.csv - This is the Feed Input file used by the TagList controller.
