Abstract

This article describes a system for controlling solenoids and cylinders that direct the flow of module tubes at a semiconductor module load station so that full tubes are replaced by empty ones as required. This system reduces the number of logic gates required, reduces system debug time, and provides for a greater versatility than the current control system.
