Adding inputs and outputs

  • Hi,


    I have a DX200 controller and im trying to understand how to connect more, for example, sensors, outputs like vaccum etc. Can someone send me a manual and explain a little of the logic of the eletric wiring? I have experience in eletricity, just not with the eletric frame of the robot.


    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    Please see install and wiring manual for DX200.

    There are 4 port for input and output, the diagram of each port showed at manual.

    The port are call with CN306 , CN307,CN308 and CN309.

    Some of input/outputs are reserved for system, for example external start is one of system inputs, other example for system output is Running , when robot is running the output for it turn ON. You can see this system inputs/outputs at the diagram.

    This system inputs/outputs are different in some one according to the robot application.


    For install the sensor on the inputs, you must use user inputs, in the diagram on the manual write which port have User input 1 to user input 8 (see CN309 port), there are a tag for each input that show which pin must connect to the port number, for example B1 is for User input 1, when you connect sensor to this pin , when it active, the input will show its status.

    The NPN or PNP of your card is important too.

  • Thank you for the reply. So i can use one of those cards, if there are user inputs/outputs avaible?Do i need to connect 24 v and 0 v on the card that i connect the signal wire?

    One last think, how do i find my port on the robot, is it just a case of looking for it on the universal inputs and outputs?

  • I don't know what is your sensor, some of sensors have 3 wire, one is 24v , other is 0v and one of wires is signal.

    On the each port there are 24v and 0v pin, you must connect 24v of robot port to 24v wire , connect 0v of port to 0v wire and connect signal wire of sensor to the user input (for example use input 1).

    For find the port number, usually there are green terminal on the controller that are connected with a flat cable to the I/O board. If you follow the cables, you can see the port numbers. (CN306 to CN309)
