In this example, if you had a relay on trackout 7, it would switch on/off with every product, trackout 6, would switch on/off every second product, etc.

Define trackout, It must be data (controls triggers every time). In this example, output 10 is set 500 millimeter after product detect 1 for 150 millimeter.
