The following table lists the current compatibility of AVL data.
Item #1 Fuji Flexa | AVL Comp.: Yes | Description: Fuji Flexa V2.0.1 or higher is required.
Item #2 Fujitrax Verifier | AVL Comp.: Conditions exist | Description: Fujitrax V3.03 and higher supports AVL. However, a quick verification cannot be used when changing the part number. This is planned to be supportd in the future.
Item #3 Dynamic Alternate Feeder | AVL Comp.: Yes | Description: Cannot perform a quick verify for parts that are using a different part number.
Item #4 Splicing | AVL Comp.: Conditions exist | Description: Splicing can be performed when the original parts and new parts are using the same part number. When the part number is changed, splicing cannot be performed. The original parts have to run out and then switch the feeder with a new feeder with the different parts.
Item #5 Dual Lane Production | AVL Comp.: Yes
Item #6 Fujitrax Profiler | AVL Comp.: Yes
Item #7 Tray Unit-L | AVL Comp.: No
Item #8 Stick Feeder | AVL Comp.: No
Item #9 MEdit | AVL Comp.: No
Item #10 Automatic Changeover Function | AVL Comp.: Yes
The following is a list of the current limitations.
It is possible to use any of the parts in the AVL data, but only the part that has the priority setting can be used when performing a quick verification. If other part numbers are to be used, it is not possible to currently quick verify those parts but a ID will have to be made for the relationship between the feeder and part.
It is not possible to quick verify the parts for the dynamic alternate feeder function when changing to a different part number during production. An ID has to be created and then the feeder is set in the machine. If the setting that a quick verify is required for all feeders, then the dynamic alternate feeder function cannot be used (unless this setting is turned off) for parts with different part numbers. If the same part number is being used to replenish parts then it is possible to use quick verify for the dynamic alternate feeder function.
It is not possible to use splicing to splice together two different part numbers during production. The operator simply replaces the feeder with a new feeder with the different parts on it (after creating an ID) in the machine when the original parts run out. If the same part number is being used to replenish parts then it is possible to splice them together.
It is not possible to use this AVL function for tray parts or stick parts.
It is not possible to use MEdit to edit AVL data.
If the NXT is not using machine software V3.10 or higher, the only parts that can be used in production are the parts with the priority settings.
