nx100 air pressure sensor

  • So I got declared the guy to wire in a new reamer, now when I fire up the robot for testing I'm immediatly given a low air pressure alarm. Our robot doesn't have one anymore it was apparently bypassed. does anyone know where this would connect inside the robot? The only thing I can think of is I accidentally loosened a wire somewhere. This happens even when the cords are unplugged. I didn't have to mess with any other wires except those on the old reamer. Any ideas where to start?

  • A PX is a paint robot. The paint and material handling are the only applications I can remember that have a dedicated terminal for the air pressure switch(s).


    An arc application is something that someone wired into an external input and wrote the alarm to occur in the concurrent IO ladder.

    I know a thing or two, because I’ve seen a thing or two. Don't even ask about a third thing. I won't know it.

    There should be a flow switch on the back of the robot (usually) unless you've removed this. If you don't have a flow control sensor anymore then you'll need to disable the IO for this sensor within the robot. Or this may be hardwired on the reamer IO board, which means you'll need the reamer board software to make any changes. Binzel may give you or Yaskawa this for free. That's how I got mine.


    What is the PSI set to for your reamer?

  • The old RM2 single motor positioners had a air pressure switch in them. The servo motor was on a pneumatic slide, so the air pressure was monitored. You'll have to look at the electrical drawings to see where the pressure switch is wired into.
