KUKA and EUROMAP67

  • So I'm setting up the I/O for a KUKA Robot that I will need to program in order to communicate with a IMM using EUROMAP67, but I can't figure out how to add the EUROMAP67 protocol to the WorkVisual project. I might need a DTM file so I can add the device, but I have no idea if that's all I need or how to get that DTM file, so I was wondering if anybody has done this before, because all I can find about E67 is done with other robots or gives no information about how they made the setup in the robot.

  • HawkME

    Approved the thread.
  • EUROMAP67 is an interface that you need to built using both safety and Input output signals. All of them will be wired to a double connector of 25 pins going from Robot to the Moulding Machine and 25 pins coming from the Moulding Machine to the robot.


    No DTM is necessaty to do that...

    That I know, I have the I/O ready for that, but how do I connect an input from the Robot to be an input from the connector of the EUROMAP cable? how do I tell the robot that, for example, those 25 inputs will be from $IN[100] to $IN[124].

  • For the safety signals they must be connected to a safety device. Have you got something connected to the extension BUS (SYS-X44)? Usally I put there the EK100 (BECKHOFF) EtherCat coupler and from there a bunch of Inputs and outputs with EL1809 and EL2809 (BECKHOFF terminals). Those terminals have an ESI file description that can be mapped into workvisual.

    All the safety will go to a PLC as it will be the one in charge for the safety of the hole project.

    The thing is that I don't have the robot here with me yet, I'm trying to set up everything so when it arrives I can make it work as soon as possible, Kuka will connect the E67 card to the robot and so but, I wanted to have the I/O mapped before having the robot.

    I have no idea where is KUKA going to connect the EUROMAP67 card or whatever it uses, I have never used that protocol before, but it seems that I will need to wait until the robot arrives.

  • Alright, so all I have to do is import the project from the robot into WorkVisual and I will find where to map the I/O of E67 isn't it?

    I can't find anything to prepare it before, but I guess I can wait until the robot arrives.
