We have and IRB1660ID with 2 external axis, M7 and M8. In order for this system to work as needed, we need to have one of the external axis with the brake applied while the other is running a routine with the robot. Basically, we need the brake applied to the external axis until activated, either by program or by jog operations. ABB Service has talked about an Axis Selector option (this is the first time I've heard about it), and they can't provide enough info for us to be able to validate if it would work or not. so, does anybody know anything about this option? or else, do you know if we could map an "axis activated" signal through a safety relay in order to bypass the brake voltage individually?
Any help here would be extremely appreciated.
