I'm not sure I can't remember now, hopefully someone else has the answer to that! Glad it worked
Worth a shot is usually gives a different code! But if you have it on hand might as well.
Then do these steps
Press the [MENU] key.
2 Press [0 NEXT] and select [6 SYSTEM].
3 Press F1 ([TYPE]), and select [Master/Cal] from the menu.
4 Press F3 ([RES_PCA]), then press F4 ([YES]).
5 Cycle power of the controller.
This might sound dumb but I'm guessing you checked the battery's already? But yea it's probs the TP cord.
You should have a program with all zero pos? then remaster? if not you will have to remaster it and touch up points I'm guessing
I do not but I would recommend running it in a plc doing ladder logic there to have a good or bad signal and then send it to the robot . Because knowing Fanuc you will need to spend another $4000 to be able to do this.
Yes, it's a CRX 20-iA/L.
That would make since it's something new they tried and has a lot of mixed feedback. How do you feel about them?

First configure the user in- and outputs.
I strongly suggest that you follow a course in Fanuc robotics.
I did not do it, so I can tell you, with first hand experience, that it is not smart !
I strongly agree. If they robot is off or not in auto mode I feel like a tech should look at it before the PB is forcing it back into it. Would make trouble shooting better.
When my robot turns on it's always on the last programed I've used clear faults and can put it in auto mode.
This is more for the Reddit plc forum
or I might not understand the question
It all depends on what sensors you buy and connect to the robot, or whatever system is controlling the overall cell. What sensors you can use depends a lot on the case sizes and the pallet pattern.
You could, for example, buy a laser ranging sensor, mount it to the robot end effector, and run a program that brings the laser to the center(ish) of where each case should be and checking if it's there or not (that would be slow, though). There's also various camera-type sensors that could be mounted overhead of the pallet and scan for cases.
The main complexity here comes from the variety of ways things can go wrong. There's always a tradeoff between trying to cover every one, and the sheer cost/complexity of adding all that sensing. Also remember, sensors can be fooled, and sometimes adding more sensors just makes for more ways things can go wrong.
If the product can accept a small drop, you could simply program everything to the height of the tallest pallet. If not, then, yes, you're probably going to want to offset the robot by the pallet height. You could do that via sensors, or by building a database of offsets per manufacturer and have someone set the Manufacturer value manually.
Personally, I would start with the "tallest pallet" method and see if it works.
So, 2 beams across a pallet might work. But what if a case is small and placed exactly where the beams won't touch it? That's the kind of question you need to ask.
How to connect to the RJ... is a damned good question. Depends heavily on what I/O option the RJ has installed. That's always a crapshoot with buying used controllers. It might have a certain number of screw terminals you can wire buttons/sensors to directly, or it might be set up for DeviceNet I/O bus, or a number of other options. Or the previous owners might have stripped everything out of it, I've seen that happen. You'll want to check before buying.
I just want to say this is a great reply!!! loads of good info. If you do the broke way without upgrading, Sensors, timers and OFFSET is the best shot you have in my option to keep it semi safe
I would use a sensor with the plc to send the robot to the start the program I mean it all just depends on the set up that you have. (Options on the robot) I'm still very new to this whole world I hope this helps a little
I am not sure why the signals need to be disabled, worked back when I was first encountering the issue, and I just figured it had to be that way. I will check it out in a little while and get back to you on that.
It is not so much a company, but more like an industry that is in the process of being automated. There is still a lot of manual operation, and the same people that used to do the procedures manually are likely to be on duty when those procedures are automated. We then become their troubleshooting/maintenance/tech resource remotely, so to say. It works well for most of our systems, but I am having doubts about this one.
Yea I'm with Hawk on this one I don't get how the robot even jogs
Here's 2 videos! LMK if this helps or not!
That's the reason why I developed the TP-Tools. No need for Karel!
The idea was to replace the MESSAGE-command.
But the tools can do more!
you can write dynamic strings like this:
:CALL TP_WRITE('USER','Value of Ris %R',1);
:CALL TP_WRITE('USER','Time is : %TIME',0);

and other tools check here:
This looks cool have a website or YouTube / examples?
