You know this is all in the Optional Interfaces manual under Fast Measurement, apart from the X23 pinout I shared.
10x :))) I'm just unpackin' the virtual KUKA-flash. 30-60 minutes before testing
Nothing! I'm not an idiot... Variable still ""/
Where i'm wrong?
fast measure interface is an option... and like all options it must be explicitly installed/enabled. so did you enable it?
workflow is something like this:
1. determine KSS version and installed options
2. get KOP files for all options from controller (should be in D:\)
3. install correct version of WoV
4. Integrate mentiond KOP files into WoV
5. connect to controller and get Working project from controller into WoV
6 save it then save it as a new version
7. Activate controller in WoV to see bus structures. any used device description file must be also integrated in to WoV DTM catalog. without completing all steps, deploying project to KRC4 will likely only produce problems and robot will not be operational. if you followed everything, you are ready for the next step.
8. go to additional controller settings and enable fast measure interface
9. on the controller, login as Expert before deploying new WoV project, make sure no program is selected and no configuration menu is open
10. deploy and activate renamed (and modified) WoV project.
All done - i'm not an idiot :))))
But just "" w/o any other pings...
Robot looks fine and charismatic in T1 an T2? but not in Variables. Just nothing...
that was software configuration. another step is wiring which too need to be correct.
Note that fast measure interface can be powered either internally or externally.
when using internal power, connect GND_Input to 0V-P.
Same thing could be done without X33 interface:
But since you have no X33 interface and need to go directly to CCU.X23, it is important to identify X23 contacts.
This can be done in several different ways. The most common way is to of course is to take a closer look at connector, try to identify type and used numbering scheme, then use multimeter and measure Voltage on all pins and confirm it.
You have done some of this already. It looks like you tried to predict pinout without doing any measurment, then connect something to X23. I would not do it like that but it is your robot.
it has been mentioned that connector X23 is not a common header connector but Molex, MicroFit, probably MicroFit 3.0 such as:
Molex datasheet from same page shows pinout to be of following format:
so for 10-position connector numbering would be:
So pinout should be
You had the pin numbers 6-10 reversed.
I prepared my "own molex" from classical wires for Arduino - their pins are fully mechanically compartible with X23-connector. I only worked a bit with a diamond jewelry sharpener to make pins unique for each contact of connector - looks fine
I will try just now!
10 times 10x!!!
Damned FB with it's login system... so I just re-registered in common way.
So, some strange things go on.
Everything is clear with pins of X23:
so i made my own cable:
and shorted the pins 1 (+24V_P, black) and 2 (In1, white) then 8 (Gnd_In, orange) and 9 (0V_P, red).
Then I added the "Quick measures" option in my project, save and upload it.
Activated the project:
No matter how much I press a "Refresh" button, I only see "" instead "0" or "1" at Value section.
What a trifle I forgot ?!
1. did you check voltages and all connections?
2. you connected fast measure signal... (continuously on)... and THEN tried to boot up and read it. fast signal inputs may be edge sensitive and the hardware may simply be waiting for FALSE level first... so leave variable monitor at continuous refresh and open/close circuit 1-2
3. you did not connect X305 (battery). there could be number of odd things happening if trying to configure system without battery connected. for example it can happen that KLI does not respond even to a PING. always connect batteries and THEN configure system. this is not the same as battery running low AFTER system is configured. order matters.
4. please post attachments here rather than linking them to external site. this makes navigation smoother and avoids broken links.
But not with my version WV - I have old 3.0.
in C:\KRC\Roboter\Config\User\Common\Mada\KRCAxes.xml works exellent :)))
Just wire between 8 and 9 pins of X23 and wires to 1 and 2 pins as the "button"
I can't attach any picture, 'couse forum needs HTTPS links only, but my very old server (started at 1998 - really!) hasn't any SSL-sertificate. I's a little stupid to use SSLs for pure HTML/CSS and file-archive
btw. you seem to consider attach and link to be the same thing.
pictures can be just pasted into post directly. on your computer select part of the image and click CTRL+C to put it in clipboard., then paste it here and it will look like this:
then they stay on THIS site... no links to external resources and loads faster
No, i'm under HPLinux now. But will try under Win
