I am working on a project which includes a Kuka robot which is controlled by a vision system. Right now we send the coordinates to the robot through a serial (rs232) connection. The problem is that the robot also has to answer back to the pc once in a while, and according to the Kuka manual, it is impossible to send data through the rs232 connection while the robot is moving. In order to reduce the cycle-times, we consider changing to ethernet instead of rs232. The communication through ethernet will require the "Kuka.Ethernet KRL XML" software package. Now my question is: When using this software, will it be possible to transmit data when the robot is moving?
Thanks in advance!
