Changing a DEK 265 Horizon to right to left | 14 July, 2019

I'm working on A DEK 265 Horizon and I need to convert it to right to left. I have changed the conveyor direction in software, however, the board stop position appears to be from 0 to 255 and I need it stop on the left hand side of the centre reference. There appears to be no way to enter negative numbers, so do I have to converter board stop on the camera?

It uses the same BS position regardless of feed direction. In right feed, it passes Board under the camera and when (board @ stop) sensor detects board has passed, drops the BS and reverses conveyor direction. There is "Right Feed Delay" parameter to alleviate erroneous (early) BS drop scenarios.

I have entered a value for the "Right Feed Delay" and it resolved the issue. Thank you.

If a few extra seconds of cycle time won't hurt you, recommend putting at max (3.0 sec) it will cycle all the way over to the Board @ Left sensor before extending BS and reversing. Otherwise play with the timing and requirement may vary from product to product (finish, breakaways, etc).
