Hello Everyone

I am using MC 20 robot manipulator with FD controller.
My application: Handling
Gripper Type: Pneumatic (2 way)
I connected the gripper inputs with Terminal block
on the controller door.
I am able to clamp/un-clamp the gripper, when
I disconnect the embedded PLC.
If I run the embedded PLC, I am able to see the
output signals(activating/deactivating) on the monitor
but no response from the gripper.
Should I modify ladder diagram of the embedded PLC?
Is there any possibility to bypass clamp/unclamp signals from PLC?
what I am supposed to do in order to use the gripper in
Auto Mode?

Thanks in Advance,
Please let me know if you need more details

Best Regards

You need to Enable the Output in Constant-> Signal-> Hardware Settings with PLC Through settings

I have connected clamping signal to terminal block no. 7 and unclamping signal
to terminal block no. 22.
I should enable those signals(7,22) in Hardware settings with PLC through
Do you mean that?
