Is it possible to move the robot to the Home position using the SmartPad without selecting a program? ​

  • Hello everyone.


    Please excuse me for asking, but still.
    Is it possible to move the robot to the Home position using the SmartPad2 without selecting a program?

    KUKA Robot KRC5.


    Thank you.

    How exactly do you want to do this? What are you trying to accomplish? Why do you want to avoid selecting a program? Details matter.


    With careful programming, one could potentially create a Dialog message on the SmartPad that, if the correct button is pushed, would send the robot Home automatically.


    OTOH, if you want to move the robot Home manually from the SmartPad, your only likely options are to manually jog (after which the robot will attempt to return to the interrupted path), or select a program, or select a line in the program the robot is already running.
