So, my ongoing saga with ConveyorTech continues.
I've performed the Conveyor Calibration, and got XYZABC results (relative to World) that are almost exactly what they should be, going by the cell physical layout. I also taught the "Workpiece Base," following the directions in the manual. I taught a position well above the conveyor, using the Workpiece Base, and tried to test the conveyor following.
My test program moved to a "pounce" position upstream of the "following" position (with the same orientation), then activated the Conveyor Init and Conveyor Follow functions. The program pointer "hung" in Conveyor Follow until the conveyor was moving forward and I received the Sync Pulse. At the moment the pulse was received, the robot took off in a completely different direction from the X+ axis of the conveyor -- about 150deg or so out. The Tool also began carrying out an extreme orientation change as well. I couldn't see where the LIN motion would have ended, because the robot went past its maximum reach while trying to make the move.
I don't understand what could cause this. The conveyor calibration is correct from all the data I can see, in both direction and distance. The manual doesn't really explain anything about the WorkPiece Base and how its orientation relates to the conveyor following, but I have its X axis aligned closely with the Conveyor's own X axis. There's just nothing I can see that would explain the behavior I'm seeing. I've carried out the conveyor calibration several times now, and get the same dimensional results each time.
