EVENT FRAMES GENERATOR OVERLAPPING LEVEL 3 EVENT FRAMES

Question asked by aztechsupport on Nov 23, 2019

I have observed that it is not possible for EFGEN to detect overlapping level 3 (operation level) event frames. Is this the expected behaviour. The scenario is I have multiple operations in a single unit batch on the same piece of equipment (element). In some cases an operation starts at the same time (microsecond precision) as the previous operation ends. In these cases the operation that starts when the previous ends is missed by EFGEN. Moving the timestamp of the start trigger tag forward by 0.1s (using SMT archive editor) allows the event frame to be detected by the interface. My understanding, from the documentation, is that EFGEN supports overlapping event frames so I am puzzled by this behaviour. Has anyone experienced this?
