KUKA Data transfer to higher controller(PLC)

  • I have KRC V8.3.32 and i wanted to send robot's motor temperature to higher controller(PLC).I know $MOT_TEMP[] can be used to get Motor temperature values but i don't know how it can be sent to the higher controller. Is there any way?

    TIA!

  • AD
  • network them and on the robot side map the values to outputs that PLC can read.

    this will need use of WorkVisual unless network is already there with spare I/Os.


    declare some signals in $CONFIG.DAT like:

    SIGNAL A1_TEMP $OUT[201] to $OUT[208] ; 8-bit is enough for degC

    SIGNAL A2_TEMP $OUT[209] to $OUT[216]

    SIGNAL A3_TEMP $OUT[217] to $OUT[224]


    then in SPS loop add


    A1_TEMP=$MOT_TEMP[1]-273 ; convert Kelvin to degC

    A2_TEMP=$MOT_TEMP[2]-273

    A3_TEMP=$MOT_TEMP[3]-273


    on the PLC side read the values and do as you please.

  • How 8 bit data will return decimal value without using P00 module.

    • Helpful

    P00 is used only by CELL.SRC which is only used if you need EXT mode. This lets PLC start/stop robot and makes use of handful of signals. It has nothing to do with other data that PLC sends and receives from some node.
