    Thanks for the reply. My english is not very good and i wasn't clear in my first post.


    My problem is the opposite: i need to enable movements in manual mode in two systems (the robot and an external machine with its own safety devices) with the same 3 position enabling switch on the robot flex pendant. When the enabling switch on the robot flex pendant is operated, the robot will be ready to move. I also need my separate machine to be enabled to move with that same operation. I was asking if anyone can confirm that i can use the following signals to do that:


    -X11 pin 41-42: enabling switch NO contact (channel A)

    -X11 pin 59-60: enabling switch NO contact (channel B)


    these signals will be wired to the machine safety davices to enable the movements. are these clean contacts of the enabling switch?


    Thanks

    Hello everyone.

    I need to use the 3 position enabling switch (dead man switch) on the teach pendant to enable external components command. Can anyone please confirm that enabling switch NO contacts are available for connection on -X11 on pins 41-42 (contact NO channel A) and 59-60 (contact NO channel B)? Dos this contacts operate with the enabling switch or are there further conditions under which they operate?

    Thanks
