Ketmol Posted February 28, 2018 Share Posted February 28, 2018 I have been trying to figure out if there is any real use for the output signal from smart lockers. And I might have one. However if it is useful or just pointless depends on something else. Do convoy loaders, and other power-consuming machinery connected to they convoy system draw power when idle or just when actually active, picking up stuff, moving stuff etc? If they do use power when idle you could set a smart locker connected to your convoy system to shut it off when storage of the item is full. Lets say you move coal from fertilizers where hatches produce coal from fertilizer via convoy belts to a storage next to coal plants where they automatically get loaded to the coal plants themselves. If the convoy machinery draw power when idle it would be useful to have the locker at the coalplants connected to the convoy-belt and all convoy machinery connected to that belt shutting it off whenever the storage at the coal plants is full of coal since that would save power.
