A kcp2 pendant for krc2 control will work in vkrc2 control ?
A ksd1-32 can replace a ksd1-16 (for the same motor)?

What doing X11 & XS2/XS3 connectors (vkrc2)?

X11 connector is safety socket. Customer connections are collected on this socket. Robot automatic working condition, Manual operating condition, Emergency stops, Door switches are distributed via this socket.

What are the differences between VKRC2 & KRC2?

VKRC - Volkswagen Kuka Robot Controller
KRC - Kuka Robot Controller

It is the board that comes with special options for the Volkswagen factory.

A kcp2 pendant for krc2 control will work in vkrc2 control ?

KCP works on both boards.

A ksd1-32 can replace a ksd1-16 (for the same motor)?

drivers with the same number may vary. Sample; KSD-32 can be replaced by KSD-32.

Can i convert a vkrc2 to krc2 ?

You can change the software, so you can transform it.

I have a question related to X11 connection, tho not exactly related to the specific question the OP is asking, so I apologies in advance if this is seen as hijacking a thread.

Is it possible to configure a KRC4 in workvisual to ignore the X11 safety signals?
I currently don't have any safety setup, so it'll just give me signal errors and won't let me turn on auto mode.
Yes i can just jump the connector, but I'm thinking of adding in the safety stuff at a later date, and I don't have the tool to remove the pins, so it'll be a pain later if I did that.

(I'm currently away from the cabinet, so i can't check the firmware version and all that, but I don't think that's relevant to my generic question?)

yes you can configure project so that it does not have X11, but .. if you want robot moving, your project must have safety interface - either X11 or one of network based interfaces that use safety PLC (CIP safety, ProfiSafe or FSoE),

when your project has safety interface you can still move robot in StartUp mode even though some (or all) of inputs on interface are not ok (not wired, wired incorrectly or safety plc is not yet communicating).

but when no safety interface is configured, you cannot make robot move at all - with or without StartUp mode.

2) if you want reply about robot, post it in forum
3) read 1 and 2
