I'm running into a strange issue, and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
I make changes to the R1/Mada/machine.dat file in WorkVisual (under Programming and diagnosis workspace). Then I transfer changes to the controller.
Then, I make changes to the IO Mapping in WorkVisual (under Configuration and commissioning workspace). Then I deploy the project.
The earlier changes made in the machine.dat file are completely gone!
For example, I am seeing this issue with the Auto Ext output $IN_HOME. I change the machine.dat variable $H_POS to match my current robot home position and transfer the machine.dat to the controller. And I see the output light up in Display>Inputs/Outputs>Automatic External: outputs.
But then when I changed an IO mapping, and redeployed the project, $IN_HOME was no longer lit up. I hadn't moved the robot at all.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!
