In the feature/section properties, there is a tab called "Raw Normals." If you check the "Override and Blend raw normals" and "Blend repsect [sic] to only start and end point normals," you can set a segment start and end position and have the tool interpolate it's orientation between those two points. Orientation handling has to be set to "change tool spin along path, keep normal" in order for it to work.

Hello, WilfridB!

Yep, I've tried to contact them, when the problem occurred for the first tima, but.didn't get any answer.

I want to make a test in a Windows 7 machine, when possible.

@BwillieS, if you're worried about the PLC dropping out mid robot motion, just populate the targets before it starts as shown in my previous handshaking example. Analogy only allows you to get out of using a sign bit / and the "IF diOffsetX_Neg=1 OffsetX:=-1*OffsetX;" lines -- still have the same handshake problem to solve...

I have a couple options here and I have been playing with them. Basically i have the option to keep a normal face and turn the tool. Keep a normal face and do not turn the face. Or do Neither. I don't seem to have a way to turn the tool but don't keep the face normal.

@Lemster68, What kind of field bus slave adapter have you used analog signals between the PLC and the robot controller in the past?

@BwillieS, If you're looking to offset a group of targets with one offset, look into offsetting the work object. If you're looking for different offset values for different targets, analog or group, you'll still have to figure out handshakes/timing to use the same inputs to communicate different offsets.

Are you referring to "MoveL Offset(p10, aiX, aiY, aiZ)"?

In this example I was taking it that the PLC actually holds the robtarget data and then sends the info to to p10. I'm looking for the PLC to send the rapid an offset value. The rapid will offset the correct robtarget.

My fear (If I am correct on the above assumption) Is if the PLC ever drops out then we will actually lose the robot as well. or if a handshake fails.

If you connect the robot to the network via Ethernet, then you can use any ftp method to backup the robot.

Much more simple, look at my earlier post.

So if I want to set up 100 points to be offset should I go about it like this:

AnalogIO from PLC sends value (1-100)
Rapid code is one big IF statement
IF analogIO=1 THEN
Offest point 1
ELSE IF analogIO=2 THEN
Offset point
...... all the way to 100?

Is there a better way to write that?

Thanks!!

Hi all

How can I send two pockets (RAW DATA, BYTE, without EOS) from robot with different size via one connection by EthernetKRL 2.2?

I want to send pockets with size=10 and size=20:

Something like this is not valid:
...
<RECEIVE>
  <RAW>
    <ELEMENT Tag="Buffer" Type="BYTE" Size="10" />
    <ELEMENT Tag="Buffer" Type="BYTE" Size="20" />
  </RAW>
</RECEIVE>
<SEND />
...

As I understand, I can use <SEND> ... </SEND> only for XML?
