Multiple Portal Entries and Portal Exits

Multiple Portal Entries and Exits enable items to enter from the left, and depart to the right, and at the same time enter from the right and depart to the left, and enter from the top and depart to the bottom, and so on. This also makes logical constructs easier to build and follow.

You can create as many alternate Portal Entry Objects, and Portal Exit Objects in a Subsystem as you wish.


Multiple Portal Entries and Exits also enable the following:

a) Direct control over incoming flows from specific objects located outside a Subsystem.
b) Direct control over outgoing flows to specific objects located outside a Subsystem.
c) An different approach to handling item flows into a subsystem
You don’t have to use switches to direct an item when its path into the subsystem depends upon the object from which it came into the subsystem.
d) An alternative approach to handling item flows out from a subsystem.
You don’t have to place switches immediately outside a Portal to direct an item when its path away from a Portal depends upon how it was processed inside the Subsystem. This switching is now done within the Portal, and the Portal Exit chosen determines the path branch taken outside the Portal as the item leaves.
e) Improved handling of challenging train control logic, and capacity management issues across subsystems.
f) the chance to construct a more congruent representation of incoming, outgoing and crossover schematics within subsystems.
