Can someone explain the Difference between the EEs, EAS, EGS, and SD on the estop board for an R30ia controller?
I have a system that is going to have a safety fence door interlock. I am thinking this should be wired into the EAS (Fence) board. My question is do I choose the controlled stop, powered off stop from the teach pendant or is it a matter of how the device is wired in? I am wanting the robot to stop once the gate is opened. Then I want it to have to be restarted from the controller when it is closed again.
I am also adding a light curtain to the system. When the light curtain is broken I would like the program to HOLD when the light curtain is broken. And then once the light curtain is no longer block and the reset button is pressed I would like the robot to continue on with the program automatically. Should the light curtain still be wired into the EAS board.
We do have the DCS software that came with the robot, but we have not gotten far enough with our programming to start messing with it. We bought the robot used. It is a R2000ib with the R30ia controller. This is our first attempt at using a Fanuc robot so we are still pretty green with it.
