Solder Wave Vitronics Soltec Delta 3 TRACKING problem | 9 April, 2018

Having an issue with tracking for the Vitronics Soltec Delta 3. Wave will not give error on "expected PCB at exit" but will still show 1+ pcb's in the wave when the machine is empty. This is causing solder pump to idle unnecessarily. Outfeed sensor is active when a pcb exits but won't register it exiting. Any thoughts? PLC issue?

I would still focus on the sensors first. Experiment and see if they are really registering correctly. Still might be a sensor malfunction, timing issue(enough time to register)or some actual debree on it that prevents it from changing state properly.

Thank you, yes I am definitely going to go back through and clean them thoroughly and monitor them, especially at rack location.

UPDATE The reason for the board count in the wave when there are no boards is due to operators leaving racks with empty PCB slots. The input feed sensor is a little bit more in the center of the conveyor whereas the output feed is a slightly closer to one side. When slots are not filled the machine thinks there is sometimes more than one rack going through the wave, whereas the output feed will view the edge of the rack (therefore seeing it in its entirety).
