Hello! I am new to the world of Fanuc robots and I am learning to get things started with a new M20iA with R30ib Plus controller our company has purchased.
We are building a safety fence for our robot. The goal is, when the door of the fence is open, we want the robot to stop moving.
I would like to know, how do you wire a non contact door switch (in my case, it is an OMRON d40z switch) to the r30ib plus e stop board? Do I wire it directly to the ports on the estop board EAS1 and EAS11? Also, do I need to wire an external 24V power supply to the e stop board? Most of my knowledge for wiring controllers comes from Arduino...
To add, I have purchased a safety controller (OMRON G9SX). To my research and reading manuals, I think this is what I have to do:
Wire the D40z to the G9sx, and from the G9sx wire to the r30ib e stop board to ports EAS1 and EAS11.
Could someone kindly let me know if any of this is correct? And if not, how to wire a safety switch to the controller?
Thanks in advance for all the help!
