REG-RPS function

  • Hello ,
    Could you please explain me the RPS function(in details) and where i can make the RPS signal settings. :help: :help: :help:


    ((Controller-T series))
    ((Robot R20N )).

  • Check out T Series Operations Manual for making changes to RPS Signals.
    - If you are working on Toyota Spec Controller, they should have the manuals available for you.
    - You may also want to cross reference the E Controller External IO Manual too as there are some pictures, diagrams and arrows.


    RPS (Random Program Selection) has several options (Not the easiest to use in it's conventional format IMHO, but the flow of it is self explanatory).
    Has 2 options:
    1. Program selection by use of RPS
    2. Program selection by use of JUMP


    RPS - Program Selection.
    - Handshaking between PLC is done with signal exchange without the need of separate commands using signal RPS_ST.
    - Program Selection is based on inputs from PLC using RPS_ON and RPS_OFF, END and allocated program signal bit pattern.
    - PG0 (Main) can then call different programs as long as they are named with the conventions of PG1.....PG99.
    - You cannot use freely named programs with RPS function.
    - Signals used for this function are allocated in Dedicated Inputs/Dedicated Output Aux Functions.


    JUMP- Program Selection.
    - Handshaking between PLC is done with signal exchange without the need of separate commands using signal JUMP_ST.
    - Program Selection is based on inputs from PLC using JUMP_ON and JUMP_OFF, JUMP and allocated program signal bit pattern.
    - PG0 (Main) can then call different programs as long as they are named with the conventions of PG1.....PG99.
    - You cannot use freely named programs with RPS function.
    - Signals used for this function are allocated in Dedicated Inputs/Dedicated Output Aux Functions.


    Either option requires RPS System switch to be ON in order for selection process to work.
