Restart RSI After External Emergency Stop
« on: May 17, 2018, 11:29:51 PM »
Hello,
I am trying to restart RSI after an external emergency stop ($ALARM_STOP = F, $ALARM_STOP_INTERN = T) in automatic external mode.  I am using a higher level PLC which sets the input lines on the Beckhoff board of the robot controller to try to do this.    However, I can't find any documentation about how to use the input lines to restart after the external emergency stop.  Is this possible?  If so, how?

Thanks!

Estop is a manual function and it requires manual reset. In EXT mode you can use IO signals to restore drives power, acknowledge messages and start program.

In all of my RSI applications to date, I killed the RSI container on an E-Stop, and used IR_STOPM or a similar interrupt to move the robot back to the "starting point" of the RSI activity in the regular KRL program, before attempting to re-start the RSI activity from scratch.
