I am looking for a way to use the system clock to monitor downtime. My robot is attached to a Robodrill with a high speed spindle. If the machine is not running for an extended amount of time, I would like the robot to tell the Robodrill to run a warm-up program when the operator restarts the machine. How do I pull system clock information into my teach pendent programs?
