I have been trying to set up a line with two ammunition factories. I'm using 3 hoppers to drop 1 fertilizer, 1 lead, and another lead on a single conveyor to make 10mm rounds. I've been googling and searching YouTube but I can't seem to find any answers or ideas for this.
I want to split the single conveyor into two lines to feed two ammunition plants. I tried the laser switches immediately following the split in the line, both connected to an xor gate with the xor output connected to the conveyor belt diverter. This works alright to split single items fairly evenly between the two lines.
I want the line to be able to make any type of ammo requiring any number of ingredients. So I figured I'd try the regular tripwire with an interval counter. This seems to count items correctly, however when the counter fires it isn't a toggle, so the diverter only moves half way before power to it shuts back off. I tried connecting the counter to a delayed-off switch hoping it would magically supply power to the diverter for a few seconds. This is not the case.
What combination of logic gates would allow me to set a counter and send groups of components to one factory and then toggle to the other factory?
