How to Copy Payload Information to another Robot

  • How do I export payload information to place into another robot in Roboguide. These robots will be running the payloads and I'd hate to have to configure them all over again. R-2000iB/210F running 7.70.

  • The payload information did copy over when loading the SYSVARS file. My only worry with doing that is the robots have to at pretty much the same configuration, correct? Else doing so could have unintended consequences...?

  • Ok, I thought so. I was fortunate that these robots are the same model, and one was cloned from the other and setting the payloads was the first thing I did... I think I should be OK to copy and load the SYSVARS file.

  • You could set them from a TP program.


    Check out the Fanuc position converter I wrote here! Now open source!

    Check out my example Fanuc Ethernet/IP Explicit Messaging program here!

  • Nation's method is a great way to do it. No risk of loading sysvars.


    I will be using this method going forward.


    Even if I only have to do it once or twice during commissioning, I'll never again have to press F4 for YES to the seven prompts of:


    "Path and Cycletime will change. Set it?"
