good afternoon, i have a new to me used kr10 r1100 sixx with a krc4 compact controller. NO documentation . i can get the robot to move, and i can teach and run some basic programs from the pendant. I want to activate a few; one , really or 2 pneumatic solenoids to control a spray head. i believe the arm has several built in pneumatic solenoids. i think they are on digital I/0 7- thru 12. i can see the IO's are activating in the IO display, but i can not get air to flow on any of the 7 thru 12 io's
I have a kuka account, but i do not know which work visual to download. i can get to the installed options screen on the pendant, but trying to work thru the kuka website for the workvisual version i need is where i am lacking.
Is or was there a default IO for the onboard pneumatics ? i guess i incorrectly assumed the pneumatics would be on the IO 7 thru 12, if so i did not do something correct i can manually scroll thru the IO list and i can see some active IO on ports in the #1000 + area they do not have any names.
i am almost happy with what i can do so far. i just want one on / off solenoid for the spray head to start and stop spray, and i will be set.
I am relatively terrified of workvisual from the reading i have done so far. I can see my self getting into a lot more problems than solutions if i start with workvisual. so if there is a way to get just one solenoid to work either internal ( preferred ) or external ; without messing with workvisual iI will be super happy
any help is appreciated
