Use distributions for the feeder

It is possible to distribute products from the Feeder using probability distributions.  If Feeding Interval is set to Distribution a number of different options are displayed.

 In the parameter Distribution it is possible to choose between different probability distributions:

  • Normal distribution – Input: [Standard Deviation, Average]        
  • Uniform distribution – Input: [Maximum, Minimum]      
  • Exponential distribution – Input: [Mean]
  • Gamma distribution – Input: [Alpha, Beta]
  • Triangular distribution – Input: [Maximum, Medium, Minimum]
  • Weibull distribution – Input: [Alpha, Beta]

If the random value is below 0.01 seconds it is automatically adjusted to 0.01.
