Trouble Starting Program on IRB 6000

  • I'm having an issue with my IRB 6000 not letting me run any programs. When I try to run a program, it'll move in a weird fashion and then it'll give me a 504 Program Run Error 26. I've tried calibrating it (lining up the lines on each axis and updating the counters), however, when I hit active, it gives me a Program Unit Communication Fault. I suspect it has something to do with that but I'm not entirely sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    As referred to by 851dave, do you have a ROBOT COORD instruction as part of your housekeeping instructions at the beginning of program 0? Rectilinear coordinates are the default so you need to make sure you run the ROBOT COORD instruction near the start of your program before any motion.

    When you press the 'Active' key, it reboots the controller to activate the new parameters. This is normal.

  • Thanks everyone for the quick replies, sorry I didn't reply sooner, I've been busy at work with everything going down. I will try your solutions out and see if that fixes it. Again, thanks for the help.
