Wanted to try these Process_Sync instructions and cut the flag handshakes out...I got 2 robots and a positioner. Robots weld a pipe in the positioner. Robot 1 and Headstock (group 3) are a coordinated pair.
I call Main_Routine, in that job I RUN R1_Weld and R2_Weld. Robot 1 and Robot 2 run jobs have Sync_Sched in them (saying what I believe is "Sync Robot 1 & 2"). Then Robot 1 and Robot 2 move down to weld position. Robot 1 PR_STRT at weld position. Robot 2 INPOS at weld position. This is where the robots wait in position (RUNNING) for something to let them move on. Robot 1 should move on to a CALL job that rotates the pipe, but Robot 1 never moves on. I have tried swapping Robot 1 and 2 with PR_STRT and INPOS commands, I get the same effect (they stay running on their motion line). I also tried putting a WAIT of 5 seconds before the INPOS robot gets to the INPOS motion line, also didn't help move the master robot move along.
I've been trying to debug using the Process Sync Status page, but this page doesn't ever seem to change or update. Attached a screenshot of what I got on this page.
Has anyone tried using these Process Sync commands and have any idea what I could be doing wrong? I asked FANUC support, but unfortunately the support agent I got to didn't have any experience with Process Sync. Perhaps I should just abandon and go back to the old handshakes with flags (boring & tedious).
Thanks for any help that may be provided!
