Sending I/O signals from computer
« on: July 10, 2018, 04:20:15 PM »
Hello!
I'm trying to create a program for my robot that will move the robot, wait for a signal from my computer, move the robot, wait for a signal from my computer... etc. Ideally I would like it to interact directly with the python program I will be running on my computer. I have been trying to look into the possibility of using the inputs and outputs, but having read every manual I can get my hands on, I have not been able to figure out how to send or receive signals from my computer. I am using an AX 10 controller with a S300F-02 robot and a windows computer. The robot has an ethernet connection that has been used to transfer files to the controller. If anyone has an idea of how I can trigger the robot's program to continue from my computer I would love to hear it.
Thanks!

Not sure but  could try using combination of Socket Communication-Usertask to send Integer Variable data to AX from PC and then converting this information to logical signal
