The Part Counter on my machine often stops counting suddenly, roughly once a day. Only if I restart IPC can the Part Counter continue counting.
What could have caused this?
Probably because I added the Part counter add-on to each Mode handler and Command handler, totaling more than ten. But I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem above.
Did you set different port number for every ParCounter instance?
Yes,I have set different port numbers.
It is not recommended to use more than 4 instances of the PartCounter Add-On in a project.
Use it as a overall counting of output of the machine or separate parts of the machine (e.g. funtion units)
not to evaluate count of single devices/processes along the part workflow.
You are able to tag each counting with the process/error bit which leads to an nio state.
This is usually the place where parts leave the machine (, FU) either IO or NIO, rework, ...
Please post your used versions of the PartCounter runtime and app to give you a better hint.
