The UI in the smart (and programmable) splitters has selections "None" and "Any" on all three outputs. Selecting 'None' on any output works okay. Selecting "Any" works on the Center output, but selecting "Any" on either the Left or Right Outputs allows no flow. I expected it to allow Anything. Ie if I were to select 'Anything' on all three outputs, it would behave as a dumb Splitter.
I'm trying to use Smart (or Programmable) splitters as a simple on/off switch on a conveyer. If I simply want to stop all flow through a straight conveyer, I can select 'None' on the Center output and flow stops.
What I wanted to do was to put a smart splitter on a belt and use it to turn on/off a split to one side (to direct flow into a storage systems only when I need to refill it.) But when I set the side output to 'Any' it acts like 'None' and nothing will flow into the storage system. I can only select a specific single item to flow, but this is a sushi belt input and that isn't a workable solution.
Since the UI allows me to select 'Any' for all three outputs, I would like it to function the same way on all three outputs.
