Configuring a Product for Export to Connex

This FAQ will go over how to set up a product for export to Connex. More information on the Connex integration can be found here: Beck Connex Integration. Information on setting up a product for export to Eclipse can be found here: Configuring A Product For Export To Eclipse

Note: When setting up a product for export it must match the data in Connex exactly, even the capitalization.

Machine List

Check the “Export to SC” box, Optionally, set an export date as well. If no export date is set, builds will export to Connex on their production date. If an export date is set, builds will be exported if their production date is on or before the export date. A common use for this feature is to allow the operators to move the export date to Monday on Saturday, so they can work ahead if Saturday is slow.

  • RF Min Length – If the items on the build are shorter than the minimum length, the items will nest together until it reaches the minimum length.
    • For example if the minimum is 3 ft, then two 2 ft pieces would be exported as one 4 ft piece.
  • RF Max Pieces – If over the max pieces, it will export and then put it on hold.
  • RF Max Weight – If over the max weight, it will export and then put it on hold.
