Postby orangemen200 » March 2nd, 2013, 4:59 pm

hello. for my final task i am using an elevator with oulleys and a motor, but the only problem is that the motor does not stop by itself. when does the run actualy end? if the motor goes on, it will destroy the elevator. when does it officially end? thanks :D

I think you need to stop the elevator, there is no clear stopping criteria in the rule. So if you don't stop it until it finally fails and breaks with items dropping off the platform, you should get no points for the task.

It should be easy to stop the task, get one of the contact switch with 3 terminals that can be configured to be either normally on or off.
