KUKA GripperSpotTech: Gripper "not selectionable"

  • Goodmorning,

    i have this issue with most of the robot i worked on. I installed on each robot the version GripperSpotTech (4.0.7.73). It works perfectly when i pres the deadman button, but sometimes the menu in the bottom left that i can use for opening or closing my gripper became non selectionable (like i'm not pressing deadman button). If i want to reabilites it ,i must select a random program of mine and it works again. This doesn't make sense for me. I don't know if i explained it well. Any ideas?

  • not sure what "menu" you are talking about... is that the Commands menu or Status Keys.


    if you installed it and something is not right, first thing should be to check the log if installation reported any problems and verify with manual that installation steps are correct. normally installation is done by KUKA unless option is purchased later on. either way you should be entitled for support and can contact Kuka Italy for help. Maybe there is a compatibility issue or you need different version.

    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

  • Thank you as always for the answer.

    i haven't had any problems on log but i haven't considerate the possibility about needed a different version.I was wondering just if that happened to someone else. I will try with Kuka service. Thank you. Have a good day.
