Enabling Active Batching

This is an optional feature and will only be available if it has been licensed in the key file.

Acquire must be in Config mode to perform these steps.

By default, Acquire will not take over the flow computer’s batch schedule for pipeline batching systems. This allows Acquire to monitor the flow computer’s batch schedule passively and interact with a flow computer safely in situations where another system is controlling the batching.

Ship loading is always set to active batching.

To allow Acquire to control the batch scheduling, active batching must be enabled.

1. Select ‘Batching’ from the ‘Config’ menu

The Batch screen will be displayed:


2. Double click on the station in the list

The Batch Preferences screen will be displayed:


3. Tick the ‘Active Batching’ checkbox

4. Click the ‘OK’ button

Warning! Active batching will take over control of the batch schedule in the flow computer.


5. Click the ‘Yes’ button

The setting will be saved and Acquire will download any historical batches from the flow computer:


The Batch Settings screen will be displayed again once all the batches have been downloaded:


Once active batching has been enabled it is possible to add new batches into the schedule.
