Discrete safety interface X11 - Ethernet safety interface X66 help

  • Hi
    Disclaimer I don't have much exposure to KUKA and I have't read any manuals yet


    For our next job we are using the Compact controller.
    It doesn't have the discrete safety interface X11 and who knows when we are getting the safety PLC, etc, etc to use the Ethernet safety interface X66.


    I want to be able to "play" with the robot. Learn how to write a simple program (pick and place), just basic things until we are properly setup.


    Obviously I can not put jumper on X11 because it doesnt exist.
    What can I do using the Ethernet safety interface without a safety PLC as far as allowing me to jog the robot ?

    Retired but still helping

  • step1:
    even if you don't have safetyPLC yet you must activate safety interface on fieldbus that is meant to be your safety interface.
    if your controller has ProfiNet you must activate SafetyDevice
    if your controller has EthernetIP you must activate locals slave "6" (safety tab).



    step2:
    deploy and activate configuration



    step3:
    use StartUp mode. (startup mode cannot be used if there is no interface to be bypassed).

    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
