Dear all , I'm sure this has been asked before but time has passed ! I want to reduce my override speed whilt maintaining my programmed weld speed . Back in the RG and RG2 days it wasn't an issue , now it seems it is. Also how can I can my overall max robot speed to say 50% in Point to Point and say 500mm/sec etc whilst under linear and circular etc. Best Regards
If you want all air moves to be at 50% of programmed speed and welds to be at 100% of programmed speed then set OVERRIDE=100% before the Weld Start point. Then after the Weld End OVERRIDE=50%.
Alternatively i think you could send your weld established signal from the robot to the PLC, and use the PLC to set your override. Then you could change your air move speed in one place on the pendant and use the PLC to toggle between weld speed and air speed based on whether or not it detected you to be welding or not.
I would only worry about the override affecting the start or end of welds, depending on latency.

I think tha's not going to work - "arc established" or actually any signal related to welding feedback requires 100% override, because welding won't be started until the robot is set to full speed.
