How to know when FANUC robot is on path
« on: August 12, 2018, 09:19:24 AM »
Hello colleagues,

Is there a way to know if the FANUC robot is on path?

I look for system variables, if any, similar to KUKA's $ON_PATH and $NEAR_POSRET.

Thankyou

What is your goal. What do you intend to use this for.

Well it's our PLC man who wants to know whether the robot is on path or not. "Better safe than sorry", he says.

I have already found $MOR_GRP[1].$JOGGED which becomes true if someone jog the robot.

Also, what path? There could be many paths programmed in the robot.

What I would find more helpful is an output saying the robot is at home. There is also a  program running signal.
