Disable EtherNet/IP on YRC1000

  • Hi all,

    I recently set up my YRC1000 with a Allen Bradley PLC, and was using CIP Safety to externally stop the robot. However, I now want to disconnect my PLC from the controller, but every time I either unplug the ethernet cable or turn off the PLC, I receive "Alarm 4911: Safety Fieldbus Comm Not Built," preventing me from being able to move the robot no matter which mode I'm in. How do I reset my robot to no longer look for the safety fieldbus?

    In Maintenance mode, in SAFETY security level, go to SYSTEM, SETUP, OPTION FUNCTION. Cursor down to Ethernet I/P (CPU board). Press SELECT on DETAIL. Cursor down to VIRTUAL COMM and press SELECT on SAFETY to change the setting to VIRTUAL.

    I know a thing or two, because I’ve seen a thing or two. Don't even ask about a third thing. I won't know it.
