Active Automation Grid, "Disabled by Automation Grid"

In an attempt to stop the Polymer Press from CONSTANTLY Overheating (it's a VERY serious problem) I attempted to connect a thermal sensor to it, so it's only active when it's at a safe temperature, and to try and get it to the same temperature as the Press, I put in a bridge or two of one kind or another, but lo and behold, I notice something strange after a while: the Press would NEVER RUN! I looked at it, and it said "Disabled by Automation Grid" but the sensor it's connected to is active, with ONLY wires and a bridge connecting them (see figure 1)error.thumb.png.6d64fa990a4af791c46ed37216dcf213.png


Steps to Reproduce
self-explanatory, but I assume it's one of the bugs I occasionally get when my viewing window is significantly away from the situation for a period of time

Status: Pending

This issue has not been confirmed by a developer yet.

Its because you stacked the bridge over top effectively cutting off the devices port, don't stack ports, they don't layer properly
For an alternative thermal sink use a conductive wire bridge instead

I like to put my presses on a timer - only running half a cycle or less - I can use a not gate on the timer to turn on an alternate press or presses with a single timer, not gate and buffer gates or similar.

I would use a heat spreader near that kind of setup you have a picture of.

they are thermal locking the press to a thermo sensor and using temps to keep the press from melting plastic.  I do the same but I use conductive bridge as my heat sync

In regard to this bug, I ran into something similar myself, it required that I place a single tile automation wire  on the terminal of the machine in question.
