I am using a FT sensor (ATI OMEGA 191) with an ethernet FT Net box from ATI too. Robot KUKA KR420 R3330 F, KSS8.5. I've got the Ftctl package.
Everything works great.
However, I would like to check the connection status to the FT Net box before initiate a FT path. Reason: I have a tool changer and the FT Net box is mounted on one the tool. The FT Net box is power up everytime I pick the tool with the robot and it takes a few secondes to get it up and running.
I could use a timer to wait, let's say 20 secondes (roughly time for the box to be connected) before starting the FT path but I am wondering if there is a way to evaluate a variable in KRL. It would be much more smart.
Thank in advance.
