What comms does Yaskawa have available for DX100 and AutoContinuum? Ethernet, devicenet, or analog?
Is this possible? I need a dual arm 100iC but can't find 2x matching controls. I have an R30iB and R30iB+
Can you dual arm that combo?
Anyone know if you can import a toolpath generated in CAM software into Roboguide?
Hello. We are normally fanuc / motoman types. I have a friend looking to maybe purchase a 6650 or a 6700 with IRC5 controls.
Can arc ware run on these robots? If so are they compatible with Lincolm arclink or would they need like a devicenet or ethernet i/p?
We've messed with g-code to robot a few times. Fusion / HSM would be able to write a 3-axis program (basically you can program a flat part) however you have to re-post process the data to robot code - it would be something you'd have to write yourself.
Look at RoboDK software, that might be more suited for what you're trying to do. If you contact them, they might be able to provide you with the software free of charge since it's for education.
You'll still need ascii upload software option however.
PMC was running, and that was interfering.
All working now thanks again!
Ok thanks! I had that originally... When I toggle UOP on the pendant screen it still doesn't flip any bits in Logix. Digital outs will, but UOP doesnt.
Rack 89, Slot 1, Start 1.
Do I need to be set up as a scanner instead of adapter?
Hahaha sorry - this is why mechanical guy's don't do controls lol... my controls guy is out this week on vacation...
That makes sense now, forgive me I thought the I/O was going to display it's status in the robot itself...but I get it now
So I just need to now figure out why my UOP isn't toggling and I think I can start naming it.
I have Logix Designer 5000 V28.12, and an R30iB control. I have a few questions on the Ethernet I/P I/O mapping
I am running the latest EDS file from Rockwell for the Fanuc Robot adapter... I can toggle I/O, it's talking and happy. Adapter on the robot is set for word size 4, and corresponding size is right on the PLC side.
I have UOP mapped through Ethernet I/P but the status is not showing up in Logix when I flip outputs on/off at the robot pendant.... Digital outs are showing up and toggling, but they are showing as "inputs" in Logix....
Something I am doing wrong?
Can you communicate w/ Logix 5000 however?
Is this even possible to do? Has anyone successfully been able to access I/O through "Ethernet I/P" between Logix Designer 5000 and Roboguide?
Hello. I have had Roboguide installed as a server license for about 6 months. Recently I tried to run WeldPro from my workstation and borrow the server license - however now I am getting "no server licenses are available" on the license manager from the my workstation when logging into the license server. When I go to the actual server, it shows that there is a server license available and it is available for borrowing... Domain is "OWNER-PC" and both are port 55200...
Something I am missing?
Looking for the part number for the Ethernet I/P board on RJ3 controls? Not RJ3iB or newer, but RJ3... Anyone have this hardware part number? I am assuming it's a wide mini-slot option board, or is it simply software that uses the existing 10baseT connector?
I always thought it would be a cool gadget....additionally the ability to convert existing pendants into wireless with a battery pack and wireless tx/rx box...
Negatives - weight, battery life, dead batteries, charging jacks, misplaced pendants
Might have to use a neck strap much like used w/ RC airplanes....I think a battery pack will add a lot of weight to hold for long periods of time...
Positives - obvious
I hope the new safety regulations allow for a wireless setup...pendant cables suck...
