Calling up a program

  • I need to call up a program from PanelView Plus 1000 to run different programs on a cell. I am using V5.5.11 on both robots in the cell.
    Problem is, i have absolutely no idea how to do this. There are several programs loaded onto it by the previous programmer, but i was never shown how he did this.

    So, i need to know how to tell the panel to call up a specific job.
    I have absolutely no idea where to even start, since i have no training with kuka robots whatsoever.

    Any help is much appreciated thanks.

  • [size=2]1. you need to get software to modify PV project. need to create buttons for example that write something to a controller that your HMI supports (AB PLC).[/size]
    [size=2]2. PLC can be networked with KRC4, though fieldbus (EtherentIP), this requires use of PLC software at the very least.[/size]
    [size=2]3. Robot and PLC need to be configured correctly so that value from PV can be used to select program. Lookup AutoExternal configuration.[/size]

    So talk to AB rep about getting proper software and training.
    Then talk to KUKA about proper training.

    1) read pinned topic: READ FIRST...

    2) if you have an issue with robot, post question in the correct forum section... do NOT contact me directly

    3) read 1 and 2
