Hi all. I am trying to get a 4 robots to talk to a CompactLogix 1769-L33ERMS PLC with CIP safety. I have set up the module in the PLC and also the robots exactly like this document says here:


I can ping the robots fine. The safety network numbers match between the robot and the PLC module. I made sure the RPIs are all >= 20ms. The error code that I get in the PLC module is: Code 16#0010 mode or state of module does not allow object to perform requested service. I should also note that the standard IO is working between the robot/PLC. Just not the safe IO.

Has anyone run into this before? I have seen other cells set up communication like this successfully, and I have even tried copying over all of the settings from that cell's robots and ethernet module, but it still gives me this error. Any advice or help on this would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I've through this a number of times.  Does the robot have option 997-3?  For example, the current robot I'm commissioning was ordered with Safemove and Ethernet/IP but the person who ordered the robot did not know to order the CIP safety adapter so I couldn't use it with the Guardlogix safety task.
