I am looking at using an area scanner with an R-30iB controller and no cell fence. When warning zone 1 input turns off I want the robot to change speed to 250mm/sec (which I figured out how to do) and then if warning zone 2 input turns off then I want the robot to hold. When warning zone 2 input turns back on I want the robot to automatically start the program again which I can't figure how to do.
I have a system condition handler running that is monitoring the area scanner inputs. When warning zone 2 turns on the condition handler calls an AUTO_START program that uses a flag to turn on UI[6:Start] but the program will not start. I have done the basic troubleshooting to prove that the AUTO_START program is being called which it is. I have the UOP inputs mapped to flags at Rack 34, Slot 1, Start 1 which is from the FANUC HandlingTool ops manual. I think I am missing something easy but can't figure it out.
Has anyone used flags to start a robot program?
